I would be grateful for any information regarding Scattone families from Anzi, many members of which emigrated to US in late 1800s and early 1900s. I'm particularly interested in etymology/history of the name.
I tried various dictionaries but was unable to find a definition. I am puzzled why it is not in the surname dictionary, which I've also consulted. In the one historical reference I have found (in a history of the region), there is reference to "Paolo di Stefano di Anzi, detto Paolicchio Scattone".
From this it sounds as if "Scattone" was being used as a nickname.
