Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cugusi


CUCUSI | CUGUSI

Cucusi, almost unique, should be an altered form of the surname Cugusi, which is decidedly Sardinian, of Fonni and Gavoi in the Nuoro area, with stocks also in Cagliari and Sassari, and which should derive from a nickname based on the archaic Sardinian word kugúsa ( appio d'acqua or ranino, watercress), or even from the medieval name Cucusa, from that same derived term, name of whose use we have an example in medieval Campidanese texts: ".Et dedilloi donna Cucusa de Sii, mulieri de donnu corrogla, to Sanctu Jorgi de Suelli omnia cantu aeda in sa billa de Sestu. ", we also remember that Cucusa is also a place name:" ... vesindado de Cucusa ... "is mentioned in a deed dated 1737 to Mamoiada in Nuoro.
