Surname Amadeo, Amadei and variations

Etymology

It is the transformation into surname of the first name Amadeus in the early medieval age.
It belongs to one of the many "esaugural" (that is, aimed at promoting Christian worship on a place dedicated to rites of a previous religion) and propitiatory names that had great fortune in the early stages of the affirmation of Christianity. The meaning is twofold: in fact, it can be equally understood either as "[one who] loves God" or as an exclamation-imperative function " [you must] love God!", from the Latin "ama deum", or as a propitiatory function "[person] loved by God" from the Latin "quem Deus amat".
