Etymological origin of Italian surname: Vito


Vita is present in Macchia di Leopard in all Italy, and could derive from toponyms as Life (TP) or other localities containing that root, vines, quite common, is typical of Tuscany and Lazio, Vito, much less widespread, is specific Neapolitan and Casertano, With a strain also in the Cosentino, which could derive from toponyms such as Rovito (CS) or Malvito (CS), they are very ancient and should predominantly derive from the Latin cognomen Vitus or from the apocope of names as vital or from the apheresis of names as Bonavita.
