Search Etymological origin of Italian surnames


Absolutely rare, the undivided form is specific to the Messina area and should derive from the toponym Malfa (ME) on the island of Salina (one of the Aeolian), a name that probably derives from being this place a colony of ancient Amalfa or Amalfia, l present Amalfi (... Inde true Amalfia ab Amalfitanis est. named ...); there is also a hypothesis that proposes a derivation from the name of the Latin gens of the first century Amarphia, much less likely the theory that proposes a derivation from the Greek name Malfia (for example Malfia, daughter of the prince of Melitene, is remembered).
