Etymological origin of Italian surname: Chiacchio


Chiacchio has a large stock in the Neapolitan dialect, especially in Grumo Nevano, but also in Frattamaggiore, Naples, Casandrino and Cardito, and in the nearby Caserta at Sant'Arpino, it also has a Lucanian stock on the border with Cosenza, Lauria and Episcopia in the area of Potenza, the derivation is difficult to interpret, we can hypothesize a sort of contraction of the Frankish name Childeric, but we cannot completely exclude a connection with the Celtic, Germanic name Kiach or with a familiar apheretic form of the name Francesco, the Chiacchio family in Frattamaggiore was listed among the noble families.
