    I'm not familiar with most of those but I knew someone with "Nastasi" and I always assumed they were Greek and shortened their surname from something longer.

    I think Nastasi, along with Anastasi and Stasi are variants of Anastasio (a Campanian surname). Nastasi is the Sicilian variant, Anastasi the Central Italian and Sicilian variant, and Stasi the Apulian variant. At least this is what Gens, an Italian surname website says.

    http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turis...0#.UX7pqsptiSp
    http://www.gens.info/italia/it/turis...0#.UX7pvsptiSp

    It's probably derived from the Greek name Anastasios. Anastasio along with its variants is native to Central and Southern Italy.
    "Violence-free society, disease-free body, quiver-free breath, confusion-free mind, inhibition-free intellect, trauma-free memory, and sorrow-free soul is the birthright of every human being" ~Sri Sri Ravi Shankar~

    Lumping Greeks with MENAs will get you nowhere. They're worlds apart overall!

    The surname Navarra is of Spanish origin. Surprisingly, it is common throughout Western Sicily and parts of Southern Italy, even moreso than in Spain.

    I also see Vella on there. That is common in Malta.

    Speaking of which.. if you put up names from Agrigento and Caltanissetta you'll start to see most of the common Maltese surnames.

    Of the 20 most common surnames in Italy, only 2 of them are found here. Marino twice and Rizzo once. Both of them are predominantly Southern Italian rather than pan-Italian names.

    Lombardi is one of the most popular surnames in Italy, but it is instead Lombardo that is found more often in Sicily and Calabria, as seen here.

    Indeed. Camilleri is a variant spelling of Cammalleri. The latter is more common in Sicily.
