Etymological origin of Italian surname: Padula


LA | LAPADULA | PADULA

The Padula is specific to the area that includes Neapolitan, Salerno, Lucania and Cosenza, with maximum concentration in the Salerno area at Eboli and Polla, Lapadula occupies almost the same area but without the Cosenza area and with the addition of Bari, Taranto and Brindisi. maximum concentration in Basilicata in Moliterno and Rionero in Vulture in the Potenza area and in Pisticci in the Matera area, should indicate the origin of the progenitor from countries such as Padula in the Salerno or Padula di San Pietro in the Cosenza area, but it is also possible that they derive from the Latin term palus (marsh ) to indicate the characteristics of the family's place of residence. We find traces of these surnames in the Descriptio Feudorum sub rege Friderico of 1335: "... Heredes quondam Gentilis de la Padula de Calatagirono, idest Guglielmus de Padula, pro feudis Chanzerie, and Fabare Calatagironi oz 100 ...".
