Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Last Name SANTACROCE is an Italian topographic name for someone who lived near a stone cross set up by a roadside or in a market place. The name was primarily extrapolated from the Old Norman word KROSS, and rendered in medieval documents in the form CRUCIS. In some cases the name may have primarily been given to someone who lived by a crossroads, but this sense of the word seems to have been a comparatively late development. In other cases the Last Name (spelt in many ways throughout Europe) may have denoted one who carried the cross in processions of the Christian Church. The name is also spelt CROCE, LA CROIX, CRUZ, LA CROCE, CROSE, CROSIO and DELLACROCE, to name but a few. Surnames extrapolated from placenames are divided into two broad categories; topographic names and habitation names. Topographic names are extrapolated from general descriptive references to someone who lived near a physical feature such as an oak tree, a hill, a stream or a church. Habitation names are extrapolated from pre-existing names signifying towns, villages and farmsteads. Other classes of local names include those extrapolated from the names of rivers, individual houses with signs on them, regions and whole states.
