BECCI

A surname present throughout the peninsula and in the south of Sardinia has obviously different origins from place to place, for Sardinia it can be assumed that it derives from the adjective becciu (old) of the local dialect, therefore it would correspond to old ones, for the other places you can hypothesize derivations from the Celtic becci (beaks) in the north and from the Latin beccus in the south with similar meaning therefore from nicknames concerning physical characteristics or crafts.
