Etymological origin of Italian surname: Fischio


FISCHI | FISCHIO | FISCO

Fischi is specific to the area that includes the Florentine, the Arezzo area and the Perugia area, with maximum expression in Nocera Umbra and Assisi in the Perugia area. Fischio is practically unique, Fisco has a small stock in Sant'Anastasia and Afragola in the Neapolitan dialect, and a more consistent one in Sicily in Sciacca and Caltabellotta in the Agrigento and in Palermo, should derive from nicknames based on the Latin term fiscus, which has both the meaning of basket of wicker or crate for the collection of fruit, and that of treasury or collection of the taxes, thus leaving doubts about the possible derivation from both meanings, the founders could be either producers of baskets or boxes, or officials in charge of tax collection.
