The above lists 349 Maltese surnames in Australia by State {source: Australia White Pages 2000}

  • Some surnames belong to other nationalities e.g. Rossi (Italian), Costa (Greek & Italian); Saliba (Lebanese)
  • Those who have a silent number are not included.
  • Those who have more than one telephone line could be included twice.
  • Maltese with non-Maltese surnames, by birth or marriage, are not identified.
  • The last column lists the total in Australia for a particular surname.
  • This is meant as an estimate, indicating relative frequency of Maltese surnames in the States and Territories of Australia
  • Malta-found surnames from 333 to 349 are not to be in Australia
