Etymological origin of Italian surname: Concone


CONCONE | CONCONI

Concone, very very rare, has a small Sicilian stock in Partinico in the Palermo area, Conconi has a Lombard stock, in Varese, Como and Milan, a very small one in Casina in the Reggio area and one in the Sassari area, in particular in Sassari and Sedini, can derive , especially in the north, from the fact of inhabiting families near a large basin (connecting basin between two different watercourses of different heights), or from the fact that they are the founder producers of large basins (vessels where normally store food, or even large basins for laundry). additions provided by Giuseppe Concas CONCONI: may derive from conca, which means both in Campidanese and Logudorese means bowl; conca de ortigu = cork vessel otherwise called casiddu or casillu, also because they were used for milking. Sa conca is also a deep valley, a cave, a cave. Finally, sa conca is the head: capìtha, cabìtza; in Catalan we have conca and cabèza. Conconi could therefore mean big head! In Latin concha = shell, vase. In Greek ?????, with the same Latin meaning. But Conconi can also be a variant of cuncuìnu, concoìnu, used in the expressions fradis cuncuinus / concoinus or sorris cuncuinas / concoinas = brothers and sisters of the same father, but of a different mother. We remember then that conconi is called, above all in the Nuorese, the tadpole of the frog, otherwise called conca 'e mallu, for its big and round head. We don't know what it means and what etymology has Conconi on the peninsula. Currently the surname Conconi is present in 104 Italian Municipalities, of which 14 in Sdegna: Sassi 23, Sedini 13, Castelsardo 8, etc.
