Etymological origin of Italian surname: Crescio


Cresci, not very common, seems to have a stock in Tuscany, in the Florentine and in the Massese and one in Basilicata, Crescini seems typical of the Brescia area, with a strain also in the Parma area, Crescio, very rare, has a strain between Alexandrine and Genoese and one , probably secondary, in Sassari, Crescitelli, very rare, is specific of Altavilla Irpina (AV), should derive from the medieval name Crescius of which we have traces for example in Florence in the fifth century with a bishop with this name; we remember the blessed Crescio, a Franciscan tertiary, born in Foligno in 1243, or even in 1500 in a letter we read: "Nicolaus Crescius Florentinus monachus cisterciensis Antonio Lanfredino Florentino civi illustrious salutem. Multa quidem sunt, Antoni Lanfredine, and in philosophia et in theologia , cum obscure dicta, tum ad cognoscendum difficilia .... ". An example of this surname is obtained in San MIniato (FI) in 1480 with the vicar Andrea Cresci di Crescio. additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Crescini is a Venetian name; for Olivieri 134 it could derive from Criscino, name of Santo (sec. III).
