OSSIA | OSSIAN | OSSIANI | USSIA

That is absolutely rare, it could originate from Crotone, Ossian has almost disappeared, Ossiani is extremely rare, it would seem Modenese, Ussia has a stock in Ardea, Anzio and Rome in Roman times and one in Guardavalle in Catanzaro, Crotone and Crotone, and Stilo in the Reggio area, could derive from the Latin name Ossius, or Ussius, of which we have an example in Brescia in an ancient Latin tombstone: "M (arc) Nonius M (arci) f (ilio) Fab (ia tribu) Macrino co ( n) s (uli), // (quindecem) vir (o) sacr (is) fac (iundis), pr (aetori), leg (ato) Aug (usti) pro // praet (hours) prov (inchie) Pannon (iae) inferior (is), L (ucius) Ussius Picentin (us) // commil (ito) praesidi optimo et rarissim (o). ", of these names we have traces for example in 300 with the bishop Ossio of Cordoba, counselor of the emperor Constantine the Great: "... Quod enim de Ossio dixit Cordubensi quondam catholic episcopo, flagitandum est ut probent non solum talem illum fuisse comem dicunt, ...". additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli That is Calabrese surname variant of the surname Ussia, also Calabrian. It probably comes from the Sicilian 'vussìa'
