surnames - pomarico

Looking to find my paternal grandfather: Francesco Toddonio/Taddonio (?), born 1877, married Angela Marchese, born 1874. Both sailed to USA from naples and listed their last residence as Pomarico. He emigrated first and arrived at Ellis Island on 11/18/1901. According to the ship's manifest, he came with 8 others from Pomarico, none with his surname. My grandmother arrived 01/28/1903. Think he changed name on the ship or when he landed, to either Taddonis or Taddonios. Would like to know what the family surname originally was, in Pomarico. I believe my grandfather's parents were Tommaso Toddonio and Madeline Mastroggiano. Any info on this surname would be very much appreciated.
