Etymological origin of Italian surname: Scarafiotti


SCARAFIOTTI

Scarafiotti is typical of Piedmont, Torino and Turin, it should derive from a dialect of Piedmontese dialects, which originates from the archaic German word schrafen (scratch, razzolare, but also to grab), according to another hypothesis the term dialectal Scarafiott would like to say mug, with a meaning completely different and perhaps related to the habits of the ancestor or his trade.
