Stepancic, Stepancich, Stipancic and Stipancich are all quite or very rare and typically triestine. Additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi of Slavic origin (more probably Slovenian), the surnames Stepancich, Stipancich, etc arise from different adaptations of the surnames Slavs Stepan? I? And Stipan? I?, which, consisting of the root Stepan or Stipan (the Italian Stefano) and the suffix-? I? (with membership value), can be translated as the son of Stepan or Stipan (see Stefani and Stefan). In conclusion, therefore, these are the cognitive-ominizations of the personal names of the ancestor.
