Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Italian Last Name of ZITO was primarily from the medieval given name ZITO, a nickname from the southern Italy dialec, ZITU, meaning a young batchelor. The name is also spelt ZITTEL, LOZITO, LOSITO, LOSETO, ZITELLO and ZITELLI. Surnames having a derivation from nicknames form the broadest and most miscellaneous class of last names, encompassing many different types of origin. The most typical classes refer adjectivally to the general physical aspect of the person concerned, or to his character. Many nicknames refer to a man’s size or height, while others make reference to a favoured article of clothing or style of dress. Many last names extrapolated from the names of animals and birds. In the Middle Ages ideas were held about the characters of other living creatures, based on observation, and these associations were reflected and reinforced by large bodies of folk tales featuring animals behaving as humans. A noble member of the name mentions Karl Alfred von ZITTEL (1839-1904). He was a geologist and palaeontologist, born in Bahlingen, Baden. A distinguished authority on his subjects and their history, he taught at Vienna, Karlsruhe and Munich, and was president of the Bavarian Academy. As the agricultural depression of southern Italy worsened towards the end of the 19th century, people started to escape to the New World. The exodus started in earnest in 1887 with Brazil and other parts of Latin America being the original destinations. By 1893, the economy had improved in the United States and people headed there from Italy in greater and greater numbers. In 1898 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. It seems that stable bynames, in some cases hereditary, were in use in the Venetian Republic by the end of the 10th century. The typical Italian Last Name endings are ‘i’ and ‘o’, the former being characteristic of northern Italy. The singular form ‘o’ is more typical of southern Italy….
