Etymological origin of Italian surname: Caviglione


CAVIGLIONE | CAVIGLIONI

Caviglione is very rare, while Caviglioni is absolutely rare, for the first the origin is Ligurian, between Genoa and Savona, with a possible secondary lineage while the second does not allow certain hypotheses, if not, by assonance we can hypothesize a similar origin , both can derive from the word caviglione that has more meanings, in the coastal Liguria it is used with the meaning of truncated cone-shaped wedge of wood used to seal the planking of the boats, while in the countryside the caviglione is a metal tool used to tie donkeys., if it could be inferred a connection with the profession of carpenter or mule driver, it is not however to ignore a possible derivation from a place name, just think of the Caviglione cave, also in Liguria.
