Faga according to a hypothesis it would originate from Piedmont, moved to Calabria in the XIIIth century it would have generated the much rarer Fagà, according to others it would be native Calabrese and derive from a nickname linked to the proximity to a beech forest, a third hypothesis, less likely to make them derive from the Latin cognomen Faganus. Integrations provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Fagà should, in reality, be a native Calabrian surname, formed within the Greek dialects of the South: at its base, in fact, is the Greek term faghas, with the meaning of greedy, glutton (entry still in use in modern Greek, with the same meaning). This does not exclude, however, that the Faga calabrese families (without the accent on the a) have in fact remote Piedmontese origins and, therefore, that their surname has a different etymology.
