alighiera ITALIAN

This name is of Germanic name origin, composed of two elements: “*aþalaz” (noble, nobleman, aristocratic, eminent, glorious, excellent) plus “*gaizaz” (spear, pike, javelin). In turn, the name means “experienced in the use of the spear, noble warrior”. In some versions of the name, the first element may be derived from “*alða- / *aldaz”, meaning “old, grown-up”. Today, names with the two different version of the first element are difficult to distinguish and set apart. The spread of the name is certainly helped from the surname of the poet Dante Alighieri. Not by chance is widespread in central Italy, especially in Tuscany. The name-day is celebrated on November 1, the Feast of All Saints.
