Etymological origin of Italian surname: Paxi


Pasci is specific to Serrenti in the Medio Campidano, with a small stock also in Gergei and Senorbì in Cagliari, Pascis is almost unique, always in the Campidanese area, Paxi, equally rare, is specific instead of Cagliari, should derive from nicknames based on the verb Sardinian pasci (grazing), perhaps indicating that the ancestor's job was that of a shepherd, but it is also possible to derive from an alteration of the Sardinian word pagi (peace). additions provided by Giuseppe Concas PASCI; PASCIS; PAXI: means peace and comes from the Latin pax. Paxi is the ancient variant, which maintains the Latin base, but the "x", in the pronunciation, deviating from the Latin one, becomes a sonic palatal fricative, like the French "j". In the ancient maps we find it in the Condaghe of Santa Maria di Bonarcado, CSMB, 11th, 13th century, in the Pasi variant. In chapter 89 we find the family of Pasi Miale (Michele):> Coiuvedi Miale Pasi, serbu de Sancta Maria de Bonarcadu, cum Castula Novagla, ancilla de iudice apus binarios. Fecerunt VI fiios: Torbini primariu et in fact his Goantine and Jorgia et Cizella et Istephane et Bera. Partivi custos (I have divided these)
