Schiavo = Enslaved

Here's something I missed, from a SacBee editorial:
Among the many sad ironies for Terri Schiavo is that her family name means "enslaved" in Italian.
Correction: My step-dad, who was posted in Italy for some years as a US diplomat, corrects me and the SacBee. Schiavo means slave, not enslaved. A subtle difference.
