Hello, Joseph Salvador! Greetings from Johannesburg.I originate from the North East of Italy, Vittorio Veneto in the Treviso Province to be precise. I came to South Africa in 1965 The town of VV has a large number of Salvadors, who as far as I can gather originate from places north of the town, Fadalto and Nove. I have a book that shows that the names of the comunicants in 1754 in the nearby hamlet of Caloneghe, are all Salvadors. The etimology of the surname is Christian obviously. (I am Catholic, by the way)and means "Saviour" or also a foundling, and so called in the sense of "belonging to the Saviour". Thank you for the message, and Shalom!!
