Etymological origin of Italian surname: Boschiglio


Boschiglio, practically unique, is Sicilian, and should be an altered form of Bosciglio, which, very rare, is typically Sicilian, of Cianciana nell'agrigentino, which should derive from a Greek nickname originated from the ancient Greek word βόσκω bosko (lead to pasture), probably motivated by the fact that the progenitor was a shepherd.
