Etymological origin of Italian surname: Picariello


Picarella has a stock in Mercato San Severino in Salerno and in Torre Annunziata in Naples, and a stock as Agrigento and Porto Empedocle in Agrigento, Palermo and Monreale in Palermo and Comiso in Ragusa, Picarelli has a stock in Rome and presences in Rieti, a lineage in Naples and one in the Cosenza area, in Cetraro, Roggiano Gravina and Rende, Picarello, almost unique, is perhaps from Campania, Picariello is decidedly from Campania, Avellinese in particular, Picciarella, very rare, would seem to be specific of Andria (BA ), Picciarelli, also from Puglia, is however specific to Taranto, Picciariello in addition to the Apulian stocks in Bitonto (BA) and Cerignola (FG), has small stocks in Rapolla (PZ) and in Battipaglia (SA), all these surnames should derive from a dialectal nickname with the meaning of little one, perhaps motivated by a very small physical constitution of the founders. additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Picciarella, very rare, seems to be originally from the Bari area, Picciarelli has a main nucleus in the Taranto area, but it is also found between the north and the north of the country, Picciariello is more typically Bari and Salerno, all these surnames derive from the medieval name Picciariello (variant of the more common Piccirillo), with the literal meaning of small, small, to be understood probably in an affective sense (as well as the medieval names Piccolo and Piccino); in some cases, however, a derivation from the same adjective picciariello cannot be excluded, to indicate particular physical or behavioral characteristics. In conclusion, therefore, it is a question of the surnames or personal names of the founders or of their nicknames. additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Probably the surname Picariello dates back to the time of the Spanish presence in the ancient viceregno and kingdom, in fact the Spanish 'picaro' means 'rascal'.
