Etymological origin of Italian surname: Ferrucci


Ferrucci is typical of the band that includes Romagna, Tuscany, the Marche, Umbria, Lazio, central-northern Campania and Puglia, Ferruccio, very rare, would seem to be Panitalian, Ferruzzi has a line between Ravenna and Florence, a Roman one and one in the Salerno area, Ferruzzo, extremely rare, would appear to be specific to Castellabbate in the Salerno area, all these surnames should derive from hypocorisms of the medieval name Ferro, such as Ferruccius or Ferrutius who themselves assumed the dignity of a name, we remember the saint, martyr under Diocletian, Ferruccio of Magonza of the beginning of the IVth century, of this name we have an example in a deed of June 1393 drawn up by the notary: "... Ego Ferruccius de legum doctore et Magne Curie judex predictis instrumentis ...".
