During this period of time are registered many illigitimate children. A notation would be placed by the mother's name "filius Ecclesiae" (Child of the Church. Also they would be referred to by the place of birth of the mother or from where the family originally came. Some of these names are Nasitanu, Pattisanu, Calavrisi, etc. (the last two are easy from Patti and from Calabria - the first one could be from Naxos?) This practice was due to the fact that the family had not yet established or decide on fixed last name.

Did you find your last name .... don't forget that the names have changed with the passing of the years...but you may still be able to identify yours.
