I'm new, and would like to start off by finding out information on the name LaPolla or lapolla?
Thank you, Jerry LaPolla
what about l'apolla?silviap said:Actually, I don't think "LaPolla" has anything to do with "pollo", I guess it has a different etymology, but you'd need an expert for that.
oh, I'm sorry if the impression I made was thatsilviap said:Yes, that's it. We can only guess, and often guess wrong. Last names come from Middle Age or from dialects or from nicknames or odd words etc.
I don't feel like deceiving anyone about such an important issue.
The same in Sicilian dialect, where polla/pulla is a prostitute. W.Leopold said:LAPOLLA That's what I've found out. But I have to WARN you, about the meaning in Spanish. It could be worth in the future to be conscious that in Spanish (at least in Spain) it means "the cock" (yes, the slang one)
