Sorbo Name Meaning

Italian: from sorbo ‘sorb apple’, the fruit of the true service tree, Sorbus domestica, edible when very ripe; hence an occupational name for a grower or seller of these fruits, a topographic name for someone who lived where service trees grew, or a habitational name from a place named with this word, such as Sorbo Serpico (Avellino) or Sobro San Basile (Catazaro).
