Crisileo Country of Origin, Nationality, & Ethnicity

The Crisileo family name can be traced back to Gattinara, Italy. Part of the Crisileo family came to America by ship (La Provence) leaving the port of Le Havre. Mario Crisileo (28), Maria Crisileo (23), Ettore Crisileo (3) and Pasquale Crisileo (1) came to America on June 24th, 1912. This voyage, along with several others around this time period, had a lot more reluctance to board due to the (then) recent Titanic sinking. Many families cancelled their trips, and this became good news for the Crisileo family, as they may not have been able to go otherwise. 

Crisileo Meaning & Etymology

Loosely translated using Italian and Latin languages, Crisileo means "The suffering lion". Aesop's fable about the Lion who eventually gets help from the mouse could be a tie in, but this is unofficial.
