Re: LINGO SURNAME ORIGIN

Actually, each division of Lingos may be of a different nationality. For example, my family of Lingos are Polish. Our Lingo surname was shortened from the original Lingowski in the late 1800's. A family member came from Galicia and changed his name from Jan Lingowski to John Lingo when he naturalized. Sorry, don't think I was much help, just added to the confusion!
