Etymological origin of Italian surname: Novaco


Novacchi is specific to Monfalcone in the Gorizia area, Novacco is certainly from Trieste, Novach is extremely rare, Novaco, extremely rare, has some presence in Friuli and in Campania, Novak is typically from Trieste and from Gorizia. integration of Stefano Ferrazzi Novach, in my opinion it is the Italianization of the Slavic surname Novak, which, taken from the Slavic novi, literally means new: the meaning, in effect, suggests Italian surnames such as Novi, Novelli, Novellini, etc, which generally they should derive from old nicknames or personal names - the same goes for Novak, who, in Eastern Europe, is still used as a personal name. With regard to this hypothesis, I have also noticed that Novak himself is a surname well present in Trieste and, still in the same Novach area, there are further Italianisations such as Novacco and Novacchi - the latter is typical mostly of Monfalcone, in the Gorizia area. For their diffusion, however, I believe that these are surnames of Slovenian origin (alternatively Croatian), bearing in mind that, very curiously, Novak is the most widespread surname in Slovenia (as well as in Poland, Slovakia and the Republic Czech), while in Croatia it ranks second in the standings. additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Novak is the most common surname in Slovenia, widespread throughout the Slovenian linguistic domain from Italy to Hungary and from Austria to the Croatian border. It derives from the nickname and trade name Novák (formed by Nov (new) with the addition of the suffix ak equivalent to "a farmer who clears the forest transforming it into productive land". Therefore, a sort of deforestation, plow. The surname was often Italianized in Novaco, Novacco, Novach Source: M. Bonifacio, surnames of Trieste, 191.
