Etymological origin of Italian surname: Buccini


Buccini is specific to the area that includes the Aquila, the Rieti and the Roman, with a stock also in the Neapolitan and Caserta, Buccino is typically southern, with a Campano lineage, especially in the Neapolitan and Salerno areas, and one in the Foggia area, Buccione has a Abruzzese stock in Chieti and Pescara and one from Campania in San Bartolomeo in Galdo in Benevento and Naples, Buccioni has a Florentine lineage and one in Rome and Rieti, Bucciotti, extremely rare, is typical of the area between Terni and Viterbo, these surnames could derive from nicknames originated from having the progenitor a large mouth, but it is more likely that they derive from the medieval name Buccio, a contracted hypocoristic form of names like Jacobo or also from alterations by contraction of the name Berto, apheresis of the various Alberto, Umberto, Lamberto etc. ., from Berto to Bertuccio, therefore for contraction Buccio and from there Buccini, Bucciotti and Buccione, of the use of this name we have an example to Ancona in the first half of the 1300 with Buccione Andree de Barnabeis, executor of the Ordinances of Justice of the city, it is not possible to exclude a possible derivation from apheretic hypocorisms of the name Jacobo, through Jacobuccio, for Buccio apheresis, then for further hypocorical Buccino or with augmentative suffix Buccione etc ..
