Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cursio


Specific of the Foggia area, between San Severo, Apricena and San Marco in Lamis, it could derive from the Latin nomen Cursius of which we have an example in a text of 1204: "... Cursius carceri perpetuo adjudicatus remansit; proditores vice promissi auri ab Hugone suspensi sunt, eorumque bona direpta ... ", or even from the apheresis of the name Accursio (cf), but a dialectal modification of the surname Curcio is also possible.
