Etymological origin of Italian surname: Morgana


Morgana would seem Sicilian from Palma di Montechiaro (AG) with significant presences also in Messina and Caltanissetta, Morgani is typical of the Lazio region of Rome and Canepina (VT) and of the Aquinas of Pescina and Lecce in the Marsi, Morgano, in addition to the small stock in riminese has a Sicilian nucleus in particular in Calascibetta nell'ennese and Sant`Agata di Militello in the Messina area, should derive from the medieval name Morgana, Morganus, derived from the British name Morgan in turn derived from the name of the pagan divinity Morrighan, of this we have an example in Britannia of 1607: "... to Morgano prince, ut plurimi suspicantur, to Morgan coenobio, ut alii. Yes true ego a mor, quod Britannis mare significat, deducerem, nescio sane an veritate illuderem ..." .
