Search Etymological origin of Italian surnames


La Guardia has several stocks, one in Rome, one between Teatino and Campobassano, one in the Salerno area, one in the Matera and Bari areas and one in the Ragusa area. Laguardia is characteristic of Basilicata, both of the Potentino, where it is more widespread, and of the Matera area, with a consistent presence also in Puglia, in particular in the Bari, Brindisi and Taranto regions, can derive from the name of many countries in Italy containing the term Guardia, such as Guardia Perticara in the Potentino, Guardia Sanframondi in the Benevento area, Guardia Vomano in the Teramo, Guardiabruna or Guardiagrele in Theatine, Guardialfiera in the Campobasso area and so many others, all possible places of origin of the families, but they could also in some cases derive from the condition of feudal, imperial or episcopal guard carried out by the founders.
