STANISLAI | STANISLAO

Stanislai is virtually unique, Stanislao has a small stump in Naples and in the Neapolitan. Additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi The origin of these surnames should be sought in the medieval name Stanislao (Slavic Stanislav), which, despite its diffusion in Eastern Europe, lends itself in reality to a difficult interpretation-in fact there are Several hypotheses about its meaning, due to the ambiguity of the root-Stani: Some sources, for example, translate Stanislaus as Everlasting glory, enduring glory (literally standing glory), while others believe that its meaning is the glory of the State, glory of the Fatherland. In Italy, however, the use of this name probably suffers from an agionymic influence (from the cult of the Saints), bearing in mind that Stanislaus is the name of two saints much venerated in Eastern Europe-Saint Stanislaus Martyr, for example, is the main patron of Poland, while St. Stanislaus Kostka is the protector of religious novices, of the studious youth and the dying. In conclusion, therefore, these are the cognitive-ominizations of the personal names of the ancestor.
