Originating from the area between Caserta and Naples, a Gothic derivation is not unlikely, for apheresis from Gothic names such as Adubrano or Alubrano. additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Lubrano is a very common surname in Campania but also present in the rest of Italy. It probably comes from the lat. 'delubrum' = temple. From it, for apheresis, "Lobra" and vocalic variants. In Massalubrense (NA) the church of "Santa Maria della Lobra" in fact stood on a pagan temple and 'lubrense' had at first been attributed to the local bishop. Another interpretation: formed by the toponym Ljubljana, Italian adaptation and phonetic variant of the Slovenian Ljubljana [pronoun l'ubl'ana], capital of Slovenia.
