Etymological origin of Italian surname: Cursio


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.
