Etymological origin of Italian surname: Chiereghin


Chiereghin is typically Venetian, of Chioggia in the Venetian in particular, with a stock also in Porto Tolle in the Rovigoto and in Venice, Chiereghini is absolutely rare, probably from northern Italy, perhaps Lombard from Mantua, should derive, directly or through a dialectal form, from an alteration of the medieval name Chierichino (see CHIERICHINI), of this use we have an example to Salò in the Brescia area in a sentence of 1615: "..Lucia wife of Chiereghin Combon da Gargnano and Giacomo of the quondam Zuane de Rossi from Castion Bergamo , usually living in this Riviera in the Cassina in the place called the corpaione della degagna .. ", but could also derive from hypocorisms of the Greek Byzantine term kyericos with the meaning of literate or scribe, we find traces of these surnames in Mantua in 1600. additions provided from Benito Chereguini (Spain) I went back to about 1660 about the search for my roots I found one of my ancestors, Giulio An tonio Chiereghini, born in Genoa between 1660 and 1670, he was consul of the Republic of Genoa in Cartagena (Spain) from 1713 to 1738.
