Catalano Name Meaning
Italian: regional name for someone from Catalonia, Italian Catalogna (see Catala). The name is widespread in Italy, especially southern Italy, a reflection of the migration of Catalonians to Italy in the 11th and 13th centuries, and of the strong commercial and social links between the Catalano-Aragonese realm and the Mediterranean coast of Italy at that time.
