Hello Bob,

Please send me an email at and
I can send you a scroll which explains the origin
of the name "Rinaldo."

While researching my Rinaldo ancestors by going
through the US Censuses, I ran across many
Swedish born Rinaldos. I can also send those to
you or you can find them yourself on ancestry.

Much to my surprise, my gr-gr-grandfather
spelled his surname as "Rinado" possibly
because he couldn't read or write and rolled
the "R" and dropped the "L" sound when he
spoke it. His children spelled the name as
"Rinaldo." My ancestor was Carmelo Rinado,
also as Davide, born in Palermo, Sicily.
