Etymological origin of Italian surname: Coffani


COFFANI

Coffani, typically Lombard, is specific to the area between the lower Brescia and Mantua, Montichiari in the Brescia area and Medole, Goito and Mantua in Mantua, it could derive from a nickname originating from the Lombard dialectal term coffèn or coffàn (type of trunk that it contained the bridal outfit, a kind of large wicker basket with a hinged lid), perhaps due to the fact that they were the founders of the basketry or artisans who worked the rush.
