Esposito Early Origins



The surname Esposito was first found in the Papal States, mainly in the Campania region, though it's also found in north-central Italy, in the Emilia-Romagna region. The name Esposito is derived from the Italian word "exposito," meaning "exposed," but was in fact a term applied to describe foundling (abandoned) children. Similar names arose throughout Europe, as in Spain, for example, children who were left at the church doors were known as "expoitos."
