CELI | CELINI

Of Celi there would seem to be more stocks, in the area of the stratto di Messina and in the zone of confluence between Marche Abruzzi and Lazio, Celini, absolutely rare, is southern, with a very small stock in Taranto, should derive, directly or through hypocoristic, even dialectal, from the apheresis of the medieval name Micele, variant of the name Michele, especially in Sicily Celi was a common diminutive for Michele, a second hypothesis, valid above all in the south, proposes a derivation from the apheresis of the surname Miceli. At the beginning of the 1600s in the city of L'Aquila, Marcantonio Celi worked as a notary.
