Origin: Sulsona appears to have derived from the name Solsona. Solsona is a town in the Catalonia province of Northeastern Spain. Located approximately 70 km NNE from Barcelona, Solsona was mentioned in Roman times and was referred to as 'Celsano.' This information can be found in 'La Encyclopedia Illustrada de Espana.' I located this information at the library at the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado.
