MORAMARCO

Moramarco is specific of Altamura (BA), with stocks also in Gravina di Puglia, Bari, and Triggiano in the Bari area and in Castellaneta in the Taranto area, it should derive from the compound name Moro and Marco carried by the progenitor, but it is also possible that it could be a dark nickname added to the name Marco, an equivalent of Marco the Moor, a nickname attributed to him because the ancestor was an olive complexion or because he came from northern Africa, referring to the meaning of the term maurus or morus as coming from Morocco.
