Cupidi has a small stock in Prato and Pisa and one between Viterbo and Roman, Cupid, quite rare, is specific to central-southern Italy, with a lineage between Ancona and Macerata, one between Terni, Viterbo and Roman, one in the Theatine, and tiny strains scattered in Campania, Calabria and Sicily, the origin of these surnames could be from the name of the Roman god of love and eroticism Cupidus son of Venus and Jupiter, a name probably attributed to the founders, as it could derive from a name or nickname originated from the Latin verb cupio (to desire, to crave).
