Etymological origin of Italian surname: Patteri


Both typically Sardinian, Pateri has a stock in Quartu Sant'Elena in Cagliari and in Carbonia and Iglesias, Patteri is specific to the Nuorese in particular, to Dorgali, Orosei, Orgosolo, Nuoro, Siniscola and Jerzu, they should derive from a nickname originating from the term Sardinian Nuorese Pattéri (patteggiatore, mediator), to indicate that this was the job of the founder, probably an agricultural mediator. additions provided by Giuseppe Concas PATERI; PATTERI: pa (t) téri, the meaning of the term is not clear, and it is not easy therefore to go back to its root. That could derive from pattu = from the Italian pact, therefore pattéri = the one who makes the agreements. In the Sardinian language there is the verb patteare or pattiare, from the Catalan verb patear which means stepping, properly of the horse: dar golpes con los piès. But in Campidanese and also in Logudorese it also assumes the meaning of zappare> marrare: in this case it would correspond to a digger. It could derive from suffering, suffering, from here pa (t) teri = the one who suffers, but it is commonly used throughout the island> sunfriri. Or from patent, from the Latin patens = space, open place; padenti, not woods, as many understand, but clearing, space
