Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cafiero


CAFIERI | CAFIERO | CAFORIO | CAFUERI

Cafieri, absolutely rare, is almost certainly due to transcription errors by Cafiero who has a lineage in Naples in Naples, Castellammare di Stabia, Meta and Piano di Sorrento and a Salento in Lecce and Brindisi, Caforio is typically Apulian, of the area that includes Bari, Brindisi and Taranto, Cafueri seems to be specific to Brindisi, especially Francavilla Fontana, they should all derive from the medieval name of Germanic origin Gauferius of which we have an example in this writing of 1132: "In nomine Dei eterni et Salvatoris our Jesu Christi, year incarnations eiusdem thousandth hundredth second, iunio cafeterias, tenth indexion Nos Alexander Cupersanensis comes and Tancredus Cupersani et Gauferius Catenzanii comes et Robertus Gravini iuramus ex precepto et voluntate domains our magnificent Rogerii Sicilie and Italie regis magnificent for hec sancta evangelia. .. ". additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Cafiero, Cafieri: Surname also present in Veneto: according to Olivieri 133 comes from the personal Cayfer, Gafier of the French epic. For Minervini 111 it can instead reflect the microtoponimo Cafièri (CZ) derived from the Arabic 'k? Fir' = incredulous, unfaithful.
