Pizanty is the name of a jewish family, whose known members come from Bulgaria, the island of Rodos (Rhodes - Greece) and may be other countries of the Balkans. There are two suggestions about the origin of the family: Piza (Italy) or the Byzantine empire. None of them is proven, or based on real data.
Members of the family and its descendands, are kindly invited to add information about themselves and if they have - information about the origin of the family and its name!

I am Victor Pisante. my family is from Rhodes island. I live in Athens Greece. Members of my family also lived in Istanbul Turkey. in the early 20th century most of the family emigrated to Africa and the U.S. Today, most live in Greece, Israel and the U.S. I am aware of Pisanty or Pizanty families from Bulgaria but I have not found any relation.
