Surname Abbo, Abbondi, Bondi and variations

Etymology

It is a surname derived from an hypocoristic (diminutive form) first name, by apocope (omission of the final sound) of "Abbondi".
This in the Christian context continued the late-Latin name Abundius derived in its turn with the suffix -ius from the adjective abundus, a common-speech variant of "abundans" (=abounding), from the Latin verb "abundare". The meaning of the Latin name, which has the characteristics of a well-wishing supernomen (often a fourth name added), would be that of "abundant, full" which, in the Christian context, was to acquire later the value of "full of moral qualities".
