Etymological origin of Italian surname: Moritto


MORITTO | MORITTU

Moritto, almost unique, should be due to a wrong transcription of the surname Morittu, which is typically Sardinian, of Silanus, Nuoro, Orani and Macomer in the Nuoro area, of Sassari, Alghero and Bonorva in the Sassari area and of Cagliari, and which should derive from a nickname based on the Sardinian term logodurese morittu (brown, dark-haired, dark-skinned), probably thus identifying a physical characteristic of the founders.
