But aren't those dialect variants, and therefore, used only when speaking dialect, ie never in an "official" context. Someone known as Sabbaturi would be still legally Salvatore
, and be Salvatore
on documents. Therefore I wouldn't personally consider the likes of Jtanu or Sabbaturi as Sicilian names in their own right, but rather as dialect forms of Italian names. I don't have the impression that you can't really say there's a Sicilian naming tradition that's entirely separate from the Italian one.
