CAPELUTTI | CAPELUTTO | CAPPELUTI | CAPPELUTO | CAPPELUTTI

Capelluti and Capelluto, very rare, certainly from Puglia, should be two altered forms of the surname Cappelluti, which is typically Apulian from Bari, Molfetta, Ruvo di Puglia, Bari and Bisceglie, Cappelluto, extremely rare, and Cappeluti, practically unique, should be due to a wrong transcription of the previous one, which should derive from a nickname probably based on the fact that the founders were endowed with a thick and luxuriant hair.
