CIAFFONE | CIAFFONI | CIAFONE

Ciaffone has a stock in Rosignano Marittimo in Livorno, one in Luco dei Marsi and Avezzano in the L'Aquila area and one in Rome and Campoli Appennino in the Frusinate area, Ciaffoni has a line between Ascoli and Teramo, in Ascoli Piceno and in Teramo and Alba Adriatica and Controguerra in Teramo, and one in Rome and Anagni in frusinate, Ciafone is characteristic of Sicignano degli Alburni in the Salerno area, they should derive from place names such as the contrada Ciafone or Castello Ciaffone di Offida in the Piceno or Colle Ciaffone di Veroli in the frusinate, but not it can exclude that in some cases they may derive from nicknames originating from the Italianization of the Spanish term chanflòn (arruffone, coarse), whose pronunciation would sound like ciaflon, with the first n just mentioned, practically silent.
