Etymological origin of Italian surname: Colosimi


COLOSIMI | COLOSIMO

Colosimi is absolutely rare, Colosimo is characteristic of Calabria, of the province of Catanzaro especially of Petronà, Soveria Mannelli, Cropani and Catanzaro, with significant presence also in Colosimi in the Cosenza area and in Crotone, according to some it would derive from a nickname of Greek origin with the meaning of a man with a curved back, according to others he would take his name from the village of Colosimi in the Cosenza area, while the contrary is historically ascertained and that is that Colosimi took his name from the Colosimo family that would have founded him and on which he would exercise Lordship, the hypothesis more plausible is a derivation from modifications of the apheresis of the name Nicola.
