CIAPETTI | CIAPI | CIAPIN | CIAPINI | CIAPPETTA | CIAPPETTI | CIAPPI | CIAPPINI | CIAPPONI

Ciapetti has a Lombard lineage in Castegnato in the Brescia area, a Tuscan in the Florentine, in Florence, Reggello, Sesto Fiorentino and Pontassieve and Prato and Montemurlo in the Prato area, and one in Lazio, in Soriano nel Cimino in Viterbo and Rome, Ciapi, very very rare , is decidedly Tuscan, of the Florentine area, Arezzo, Ciapin seems to be unique, Ciapini, always Tuscan, has a stock in Livorno and one in the Prato area, Ciappetta has a small Roman stock and one in Cassano allo Ionio in Cosenza, Ciappetti, almost unique, it is from central Italy, Ciappi is typical of Florence and of the Florentine, with a stock also in Poggibonsi in the Siena area, Ciappini has a stock in the Sondriese area in particular in Val Masino and one in Romagna in Ravenna, Cesena, Cesenatico and Rimini, Ciapponi has a stock in northern Lombardy, particularly in Morbegno, all these surnames should derive, directly or through various hypochoristic or augmentative, even dialectal, forms from the medieval name Ciapo, or Ciappo, a form aferetica altered of the name Jacopo, modified from the ancient Tuscan language: ".. it could be believed it had the name of Jacopo, whence for corruption it came Ciaffo, as also in our days it is Ciapo ..", of this use we have an example in the second half of the 1300s, with the Podestà of Siena, he later became Captain of fortune Ciappo (de 'Ciappi) from Narni, of whom we read for example in the new Chronicle of Matteo Villani: ".. So the municipality took honest causes and revoked the captain and his council, and in his place sent authority with other citizens, who was Messer Ciappo of Narni, a valiant man of arms, and heard much. Which, having many masters of lumber and quarries from Florence, quickly made the land of ditches and fences lumber .. ".
