Etymological origin of Italian surname: Oronte


ORONTE | ORONTI

Oronte, absolutely rare, would appear to be from the Neapolitan area, Oronti, has a small stock in Forlì and presences in the Neapolitan dialect, they should derive from the name Oronte of Saracen origin, we remember Oronte, who in the work of Giuseppe Verdi I Lombardi makes the part of the son of the Ottoman chieftain, who loves the Catholic Giselda, but could also derive from the name of the Lebanese river Oronte, which is now called Asi or Afi, a name perhaps given as a nickname to a crusader.
