Etymological origin of Italian surname: Pelle


Pella has stocks in the Vercelli and Verbanese, in the Piacenza area and in the Roman area, Pelle has various stocks around Italy, in Turin and Vercelli, in the Savona and Genoa areas, in central and southern Lazio, and in the Reggio area, also known as Pital, it has stocks in western Lombardy, in Savona and Genoa, in the Reggio, Carrarese and Lucca, in the Florentine, in the Grosseto, in the Perugino, in the Roman, in the Neapolitan and in the Lecce, they should all derive from apheretic forms of the name Apelles or more probably from the apheresis of the word apella or apelle attributed by the ancient Romans to the Jews as circumcised, thus writes Orazio in the first book of his Sermones: "... credat Iudaeus Apella, non ego; namque deos didici securum agere aevom nec, siquid miri faciat nature. .. ", perhaps conceivable therefore a very distant Jewish origin.
