Re: Enzi family 1386 origin
I have a theory about the name 'Enzi'.

In the swahili language, 'enzi' means 'power'.
About 35% of the Swahili language comes from the Arabic language as a result of many centuries of trade withArabic-speaking traders.
In fact, today the family name 'Al-Enzi' is common in Arabic-speaking countrie such as Iraq, Iran, Egypt, etc.
"Al" means "the" in arabic, therefore, "The Power". It makes sense that the Arabic traders would have brought that word back with them, and then through migration brought it to Italy.
