Meaning "captain," this name began as a nickname in the Medieval Ages, probably for someone who actually was a ship's captain, or perhaps for someone who acted in some way like a captain. The variations which begin with "Catt-" appear mostly in Tuscany and Naples, and, as is the custom for all Italian names, those that end in "i" are from the north, while those that end in "o" are from the south.

Cattano Early Origins



The surname Cattano was first found in the southern part of the province of Emilia for the most part, though the name also appears elsewhere in Italy.
