Etymological origin of Italian surname: Vuoso


Vuoso, quite rare, is specific to the island of Ischia, in Neapolitan, of Barano D'ischia in particular, of obscure etymological origins, could derive from a nickname originated from the Neapolitan term vuoso (I want, voice of the verb to want), perhaps to Emphasize a particularly domineering character of the ancestor. Hypothesis provided by Carmela Vuoso we pass on the news that the surname Vuoso should derive from the dialect ' Nzevoso ' (greasy or dirty), probably motivated by the humble trades carried out in the past, such as the charcoal or the untore of shutters.
