Etymological origin of Italian surname: Zallocco


ZALLOCCHI | ZALLOCCO

Zallocchi, almost unique, it is probably due to errors in transcription of Zallocco, which is typical of the area that includes the provinces of Macerata and Ascoli Piceno, Potenza Picena, Civitanova Marche and Morrovalle in Macerata and Montegranaro and Sant'Elpidio A Mare in Piceno, should derive from the medieval name Zalochus of which we have an example in the first half of 1500 with a certain Zalocco envoy of the Serenissima at Suleiman the Magnificent as is evident from the Sarracenicae Historiae Caelii Augustini Curionis: "... Zalochus ad Solymanum missus... ".
