Etymological origin of Italian surname: Vega


It has a Candida strain (AV) and one in Nicosia (EN) and in Palermo should be of Spanish origin. Hypothesis provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Typical mostly of the Avellinese, the Messina and the Ennese, but also present in the North and North center of the country, Vega is most likely a surname of foreign origin, imported from the Iberian Peninsula during the time of Spanish Occupation: It is in Spain, in fact, that the surname is more widespread (and of course also in Latin America, as well as in the USA, following the strong wave of emigration of South Americans to the United States). As for its meaning, this surname originates from the place names: many, in fact, are the Spanish localities with the name of Vega or La Vega, a term that literally indicates a prairie (originally had meaning of fertile land or Irrigated).
