Pacchione is typical of Abruzzo, in the area between Teramo and Pescara, Silvi (TE) and Pescara, Pacchioni has a Lombard lineage between Bagnolo Cremasco and Crema in Crema, Lodi and Corte Palasio in Lodi and Milan, and an Emilian stock in Modena, between Modena, Carpi and Cavezzo. additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi The surname Pacchione probably derives from the ancient Italian pacchione, with the literal meaning of mangione, which eats a lot (from the verb pacchiare, which in the familiar language means precisely to eat very, greedily); in this case, in fact, it would be a rare variant of the much more common Mangione (which presents a further variant in Mangiante), a surname widespread throughout Italy (especially in the south, with strong concentrations in Sicily and Puglia). It should also be added that, beyond a direct origin from a nickname, these surnames could also derive from old personal names, to be understood perhaps as variants of the medieval names Grasso and Grosso: in the Siena of the second '200, in fact, appears the name of Messer Mangiante da Pietra of the Pannocchieschi House and, over the following centuries, this name is often found among members of the same family. In conclusion, therefore, it is a question of the surname or the personal name of the progenitor or a nickname attributed to them.
