||Surnames by Paul
Masi: it is probably a variant of Maso, that is from the first name
of TOMMASO (Thomas).In Italian there are about 10 surnames
derived from Tommaso.
Davi: It is mainly sicilian, very local, its origin is for me
mysterious. There is also D'Avi but this surname is still rarer.
Acquaro: it should be a southern variant of Acquaioli. this surname
indicates probably a man who used to go around to sell
Caruso: This surname in sicilian dialect means also 'boy'. It is very
popular around Italy also because of the opera singer. It
derives from a occupational word meaning 'apprentice'.
Caso: It is also a spanish surname.It is typical from the region of
Naples. I ignore its meaning. Could it be locative like Casa?
