Currao Spelling Variations



Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms in comparison with other European surnames because they reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each of which has its distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the most standard Italian surname suffix is "I", whereas in Southern Italy the most typical surname suffix is "O". Sardinian is very different from other forms of Italian and in fact, it is considered to be its own distinct language. Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes, church officials, and the bearers of names, spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules. As a consequence of the major changes in the Italian language and in the local spellings of Italian surnames that occurred over the course of history, there are numerous variations for the surname Currao. These spelling variations include Corradi, Corrado, Curradi, Currado, Gurrado, Corrŕo, Corra, Corro, Currao, Curro, Corradetti, Corradini, Corradino, Coraini, Corago, Corain, Corradone, Currarone, Curraroni, Corradazzi, Coradazzi, Corazzi, Corradengo and many more.
