Etymological origin of Italian surname: Pirredda


PIREDDA | PIRREDDA

Piredda is extremely widespread throughout Sardinia, Pirredda, very rare, typical of Arzachena, Luogosanto and Olbia, deriving from nicknames originating from the diminutive of the Sardinian word pira (pear), traces of these surnames are found in the north of the island since end of 1500. additions provided by Giuseppe Concas PIREDDA; Pireddu; PIRREDDA; PIRELLA: probably the base of the three surnames is the Latin "pira", plural neutral from pirum = pear (fruit). They might mean small pear, perina> pirixèdda, piringìnu. Is pireddas de is origas are the earrings, is orecchinus, in antique Campidanese, is arraccàdas. Piredda or pireddu or even piritta is the cheese peretta. A piredda or pireddu or pirredda is also the "pernacchia": in this case the base is not "pira", but piru or pidu = fart! We believe that the surname is based on the Latin "pira", fruit of the pear tree. In ancient times it was undoubtedly Pirella: in the Sardinian language, but also in almost all southern dialects, we witness the passage of the double "Latin" to the double "d"> occlusive.
