Etymological origin of Italian surname: Sciacovelli


SCIACOVELLI | SCIACOVIELLO

Sciacovelli is specific to the Barese, where it is very widespread in Bari, with quite significant appearances in Santeramo in Colle, Triggiano and Modugno, Sciacoviello, decidedly rarer, is characteristic of Sant'Eramo in Colle, always in the Barese. Integration provided by Stefano Ferrazzi of dialectal mould, these surnames derive from the medieval name Iacovello (with a variant in Iacoviello), which, in the ancient Onomastics, consists in a fondly of the original Iacovo-archaic form of Iacopo (see IACOVACCI): It should be noted, in fact, that the pronunciation Sciacovello or Sciacoviello adapts the diphthong Ia-in a more dialectal wake-, as happens not infrequently in the surnames of Puglia-are an example the surnames Abategiovanni/Abbatescianni and Mastroianni/Mastroscianni. In conclusion, therefore, these are the cognitive-ominizations of the personal names of the ancestor.
