    Name Meaning

    French (Lorraine): variant of the habitational name Delle 2 or a masculine form of a homonymous topographic name. — Note: In the population figure published by the US Census Bureau, the Spanish or Italian preposition with fused definite article del ‘of the’, which forms first part of surnames such as Del Cid and Del Signore , has apparently been in some instances counted as an independent surname.
