1. Is it first name or a last name?
2. Could you record your aunt saying it? I'd like to hear it.

Last name

And no I really can't record her because she is atleast an 8 hour drive from me, and on the phone is crazy. 83 kicks in and she gets sucked into looney world.

RE: need Italian spelling of a name I heard.
Well, I've made some research and the closer last names I can find in Sicily with those sounds is Carrozza. If I could hear it, it'd be easier for me to identify the sounds, but I understand that it's not possible for you.

Actually my answer is different than yours.

Hey Bow, how come your parents don't have it written anywhere? Grandparents, aunt, any notes, letters anything?

I also saw the name Carrozza, but that counds like car-o-tsa, so it's not this one. I I understood Bow correctly, it sounds like chair or cheer. That is why they changed it to Cherry.

family drama, someone dies, the person with the house throws everything out, dis-owning siblings, the usual. My parents are both deceased, so this elderly aunt (who is family by marriage) is the only connection I have for my mothers side of the family.

YES! I was thinking the same thing.

The pronunciation that Bow provided is not standard, therefore it might not properly represent the sounds she heard.

@Bow The first syllable, is it a K sound or a CH sound like "chest"?

Also, I thought about documents and papers, but they might already have misspellings when they were filled in upon arrival. You could look into them to see if you can find something though. Big Grin

Sure, don't you remember how Vito Andolini got his new last name in America?
