Etymological origin of Italian surname: Orefici


Orefice is widespread in Campania, in the Neapolitan in particular in Naples, Casoria, Casavatore, Arzano and Afragola, in Rome, in the Cosenza area in Corigliano Calabro and Malvito, in Sicily in Bronte and Caltagirone in the Catania area and in Syracuse, Orefici apart from a small ceppo in Rome is present very sporadically in Emilia and Tuscany, Orifici is typical Sicilian from Messina to Sinagra, Ucria and Messina, with stocks in Casteldaccia (PA) and Paternò (CT) additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Orefice has a vast epicenter between the Neapolitan, the Caserta and the Salerno, but minor stocks are also found in the Cosenza area, in the Catania area, in the Palermo area, in the Syracuse area, in the Cagliari area and a little in the north and central north of the country, Orefici, much rarer than the previous, is mostly present in the Roman, Piacenza and Massese areas, Orifici is more typically Sicilian, with greater stocks in the Messina area, in the Catania area and in the Palermo area, all these surnames derive from the term orefic and, with the current meaning of goldsmith, jeweler. It is therefore a question of the surnames of trade names attributed to the founders.
