The surname Amoroso was first found in the south of Italy, which consists mostly of the Papal States, though it also includes Sicily and a few smaller regions. The name does occasionally appear in the north however; most northern variations of the name end in "i," whereas those that end in "o" are collected in the south. The name means "in love," and so was either given to a man who was obviously infatuated with a woman; or perhaps to a man so handsome and/or charming that many women were in love with him.
