BELLUCCI | BELLUCCIO | BELLUGI | BELLUTI | BELLUTO | BELLUZZI | BELLUZZO

Bellucci is typical of central Italy with strains also in the Modena area and to the south, Belluccio, absolutely rare, would seem to be from Campania, Bellugi, quite rare, is typically Tuscan, particularly of the Sienese, Belluti, extremely rare, it would seem Mantuan, Belluto, very much rare, it is specific of Brandizzo (TO), Belluzzi has a stock in the Bolognese and lower parts of Mantua and one in the Vicenza area, Belluzzo has a stock in Legnago in the Verona area and in the Vicenza area, one between the provinces of Udine and Venice, and one Favara (AG), should all derive from the Latin name Bellutus of which we have an example in an ancient tombstone: "D (is) M (anibus) - L (ucius) Sicinius A (uli) f (ilius) Arn (ensi) - Bellutus IIIIvir - iter (um) i (ure) d (icundo) Clusi ". We find traces of these surnames in Montefeltro and San Marino in the early 1400s with the noble Belluzzi family, in the Cosenza area in 1600 in Frascinento we read: "Die 16 men [sis] 9 [m] bris 11 Ind [itioni] s 1612 in Casali S [anct] i Cosmi et Constitutis in n [ost] ri p [rae] sentia Horatio Belluccio mayor In p [rae] sentis dicti Casalis ... ", at the beginning of 1600 we find the archpriest Giovanni Bellugio, died in 1624, whose sepulchral monument is preserved in Grottaminarda nell'avellinese, in the Modena area, still in the 1600s a Pietro Belluzzi is a Vignola bargello. additions provided by Marcello The surname Bellucci present in Capitanata (Puglia) derives from a stock coming from around 1600 from Sicily where he was addicted to commerce and where he had previously come from Spain, most likely during one of the Spanish transfers or conquests. additions provided by Andrea Manni The surname Bellucci in the south, particularly in Calabria and Puglia, could also be the Italianization of Belushi (or Blushi), a surname arbëreshë (or arvanita) which also gave rise to another Italian surname, Bellusci , present above all in Calabria in the Cosenza area and in the province of Catanzaro. Hypothesis that obviously does not exclude the others already present in the site.
