Re: Is SCHIAVA related to SCHIAVO?

I believe so.It is my understanding that Schiava would be the feminine form of the word and Schiavo would be the masculine form.One meaning I have heard is that the name means "slave".
My great-grandfather came to the U.S. from Termini-Imerese, Sicily, Italy.It is family lore that he had half brothers in Africa.Maybe there might be a connection?!?
