Mannarino Name Meaning
Italian: in Calabria this word denotes a horse born and raised in a stall, elsewhere a gelding; in Sicily it can be derived from mannara ‘axe’; it can also mean a sheepfold and may even be derived from lupo mannarino ‘werewolf’. These meanings mostly suggest nicknames, though in the case of the sheepfold, an indirect occupational name for a shepherd is more likely.
