So, just so I have it right, you're saying that the last name Tamanini (which is likely a diminutive ...-ini and common in the Northern Italian province of Trento) likely comes from the first name Bertrame via German via French? According to my names book it would then mean something like either 'bright' or 'bright shield' ...

BTW ..thanks again!!!
