Surnames: Schiotis / Chiotis
Does that mean that Schiotis in the United States was originally Chiotis?

Chiotis is a person from Chios, like Atheneos is a person from Athens, and Kritikos is a person from Crete (Kriti).

Schiotis is a terrible mistake.

I know that my Chiotellis, Shiotelis came from Mytilene, Levos and I have been looking for George Chiotellis and his brothers or family, he immigrated to the States at the age of 15.

Levos = Lesvos
Shiotelis is wrong. The Greek language does not entertain the combination SH.

Chiotellis also does not sound right. Probably a combination of two names
Chiotis + Tellis (Tellis like in Tellis Savalas, a name that you know)
I will be surprised if the name existed before about 1870.

In Greek the name is written Χιωτέλης/Chiotelis and Χιωτέλλης/Chiotellis. Here is a short note about a Chiotellis family from Lesvos (with origins in Chios). http://www.lesvosoldies.gr/gr/1183981995/1236976608.html

If you Google the word "Skios" you will find out.

Thank you so much Margarita for your reply in regard to Chiotellis and Chiotelis. It has been very difficult to locate any relatives from Lesvos with origins in Chios. All I know is that Chitotellis/Chitelis was change here in the USA to Shiotelis and Shotell.
