Mystery Monday: Valgesio

Every Monday we will post an entry that hasn’t yet been published with a view towards harnessing the collective onomastic power of the internet. If you have any thoughts about the name’s origin, other variants it might be related to, other examples of its use, etc., please share them in the comments! If you wish to browse other Mystery Monday names, there is an index.

Continuing our recent trend of weird Italian names (we’ve been transcribing and entering a whole ton of Italian names from a wide variety of sources in the last few months; look for many of them in the next edition!), we’ve got a 16th C male name for today’s delectation:

Valgesio

Recognize it? Seen it before? Got any thoughts as to its origin? Please share in the comments!
