italian surname ZAMPANO's meaning (Modified)
(I thought you didn't understand
that i questioned last time...
so i modified the question and post up again.)I was looking for the
meaning of ITALIAN surname

maybe is similar to
surname 'ZUMPANO', and
that's ITALIAN surname, too.
(that surname is based from
Slavic zupan ‘leader’, ‘chief’, ‘headman’.
and i found this information for 'ancestry'..)does anybody know

Zumpano in Italy is a calabrian surname and also the name of a village near Cosenza in Northern Calabria region. Zampano appears near Naples. this second surname could be a variant of Zumpano. The origin of the name of the village, Zumpano is not clear.

Well, I can't find any credible information about Zampano's meaning. I did find it as a word on Wiktionary but I doubt it has the same etymology as the surname.So, in that sense, it could be related Zumpano or it could not. Since there's little information about Zampano, one could just take an educated guess, I suppose. We just got to wait and see if someone with a lot of knowledge about Italian surnames steps in to try to find out the etymology.
