Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cascio


CASCIO

Specifico della Sicilia nord occidentale, potrebbe derives from a soprannome legato al dialettale vocabolo casciu (caseificio, cacio), but perhaps and more likely, no matter Cascia (Cassia), in title, we carry the contents of a Roman tomb that character quote belonging to this clan: "D (is) M (anibus) A (ulus) Cascius Marcianus mother sua Casciae Capriolae pientissim (a) eb (ene) m (lie) p (osuit)". I know of this cognomen in Palermo if we did Palermo in 1600: "... In praeteritis rivulis istis omnibus, puriorem ex fonte aquagli porrigimus; neque gravitier ferimus ad manus in nostri non pervenisset vitam, quam (eodem Vincentio teste) Jacobus Cascio Thermitanus Panormi edidit year MDCXI ... ".

Specific to north-western Sicily, it could derive from a nickname linked to the dialect word casciu (dairy, cheese), but it is perhaps more probable, from the gens Cascia, as an example we report the content of a tombstone from the Roman era that cites characters belonging to to this clan: "D (is) M (anibus) A (ulus) Cascius Marcianus matri suae Casciae Capriolae pientissim (a) and b (ene) m (erents) p (osuit)".
