I've searched the Internet & only found the surname in relation to Germany. Immigrants, etc...
One thought that crossed my mind was that I wonder if there is a Roman connection to the surname. Rome tried to hold German lands in their conquests. Could a family have held on to the Latin pronouciation? If you find out, I'd be interested, too.
