STALLONA | STALLONE | STALLONI

Stallona is unique, stallions is almost unique, these are errors of transcription of the surname Stallone who has a Sicilian strain particularly in the Trapani in Campobello of Mazara and Castelvetrano and an Apulian particularly in the Bari in Giovinazzo, Bari and Palo del Colle . Intehations provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Stallona, the only one, is probably a mistake of transcription of Stallone, which has major strains in Trapani, in the Bari and, to a lesser extent, in the Foggian, stallions, almost unique, seems originating in Rome, all these Surnames derive from the medieval name Stallone, which, like the most common horse, is to be understood in one of the many symbolic meanings attributed to this animal, such as the nobility of his bearing, the freedom of his gallop or even (and this applies especially to the Stallion) His physical prowedness, his instincal strength and his charge of sensuality; It should also be remembered that in ancient religions the horse was considered a sacred animal and several Greek deities (such as Demeter, Poseidon, Artemis, etc) were also known as Hippios, which literally means ponies. With regard to the last names in question, therefore, these are the cognominizations of the personal name of the ancestor.
