Etymological origin of Italian surname: Crifo'


CRIFASI | CRIFO | CRIFO'

Crifasi, typically Sicilian from Palermo, San Cipirello and Palermo, with presences also in the Trapani area, Crifo, almost unique, should be the product of incorrect transcriptions of the surname Crifò, which is typically Sicilian from Messina, Gioiosa Marea, Messina and Patti, with a stock also in Lentini in the Syracuse area and in Catania, and which should derive from a Greek nickname based on the ancient Greek term ???????? kryfaios (hidden, clandestine, secret), perhaps indicating that the progenitor was a very reserved type, or that he came from a secret place.
