Etymological origin of Italian surname: Callocchia


CALLOCCHIA

Absolutely rare, from central Italy, probably from Lazio or Abruzzo, it should derive from a modification of the Greek name Kalò or the adjective kalos (beautiful), but it is also possible that it originated from a nickname linked to the word calocchia (perch used to beat the wheat).
