Etymological origin of Italian surname: Crispi


Crispi, widespread throughout the south, has an important stock in Sicily in the Catania area, very rare Crispini would seem Umbrian, Crispino spread throughout the south has a stock in the Neapolitan and Caserta, one in the Cosenza area and one in the Catania area, Crispo has a stock in Campania and one in Calabria, they all derive from the Latin cognomen Crispus or from its diminutive Crispinus, this name is cited for example by Suetonius: "... Passienus Crispus, municeps Viselliensis, his apprenticeship in senatu ita coepit: ..." historian Latin lived in the first and second centuries AD, while the second is remembered by the Roman Consul from 354 to 351 BC Titus Quinctius Poenus Capitolinus Crispinus. additions provided by Maurizio Crispini I did some genealogical research: my lineage has been in the Marche in the province of Macerata since 1450/1500; I think that the Umbrian lineage mostly located in Spoleto derives from ours but obviously there is no security due to a lack of information.
