Etymological origin of Italian surname: Caperchi


CAPERCHI | CAPERCHIO | CAPIRCHIO

Caperchi is decidedly Roman, Caperchio, very rare, is Neapolitan, Capirchio is typical of the latinense, of Itri, Terracina and Fondi, they could derive from a name of places like Colle Caperchio near Orte in the Viterbo area, but most probably derive from nicknames based on on the dialectal term Lazio caperchio (capecchio, that is, the filacious material as the cotton wool used for padding), probably motivated by the fact that the progenitors had bristly hair or beards, we find traces of these surnames in 1400 in Pastena in frusinate, where in an act a Cola Capirchio is cited as a beneficiary.
