Bezzina is only a Jewish surname.

I think it’s mostly Maltese, non-Jewish?

I confirm that is a common Maltese last name. It sounds Italian but I did not find any Bezzina in Sicily.

Is it really? When I looked online for the origin, it kept saying that it was Jewish.

Oh, well, Samara is part Maltese then like Britney Spears.

Because when I searched for the origin of Bezzina, all of the articles were saying that it was Jewish. None of them mentioned that it is a common non-Jewish Maltese surname. They made it seem as if the only Maltese with that surname are Maltese Jews. Therefore, I assumed that Samara’s mother must be a Maltese Jew.

Yes, Bezzina sounds very Italian, but it isn’t. It seems it is only a Maltese name.

Well, now that it is cleared up, Maltese has been added to Samara’s ethnicity.

Thank you, follers!
