Over the centuries the name Lo Nigro may have had many changes and the present form, according to our studies, appears to be different from the original. It is important to realize that the name may have gone through dialect variations, contractions, shortened forms of the original one, lenitions, errors due to incorrect transcriptions and voluntary changes. Therefore, we believe that the surname Lo Nigro came originally from NIGRO, on which we are able to provide the following historical and heraldic information taken from bibliographic sources of Araldicus. This Italian and French Last Name of NIGRO is a nickname for someone with notably dark hair or complicatedion from Old French ‘noir’. In Spanish the name can be spelt as Negri, De Negri(s) and Nigris. Amongst the many variations of this name it can be spelt as Nier, Negri. A noble member of this name was Ada NEGRI (l870-l945) Italian poet, born in Milan. She became a teacher, wrote socialistic verse and short stories. As the agricultural depression of southern Italy worsened towards the end of the l9th century, people started to escape to the New World. The exodus started in earnest in l887 with Brazil and other parts of Latin America being the original destinations.

In l898 there were more Italian immigrants to the USA than from any other state. In the post war era, more than a quarter of Italians left the state for a new life. They joined a flood of immigrants to America which was averaging a million a year in the pre war years. The origins of Italian last names are not clear, and much work remains to be done on medieval Italian records.

The typical Italian last names endings are ‘i’ and ‘o’ the former being characteristic of northern Italy. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield and in tournaments. With armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification was the insignia painted on his shield and on his surcoat, the draped and flowing garment worn over the armour. Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their Last Name as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God. However much the individual may have liked or disliked the Last Name, they were stuck with it, and people infrequently modified them by personal choice. A more common form of variation was in fact involuntary, when an official change was made, in other words, a clerical error…. Altri cognomi trovati: Nigro, Negro, Nigra, Negra, Negri, …
