ZAPPA | ZAPPACOSTA | ZAPPELLA | ZAPPELLI | ZAPPULLA | ZAPPULLO

Zappa has a large nucleus in Lombardy, but there should be strains between Molise and Abruzzi, in Naples, in Palermo and in Genoa, Zappacosta is typical of the Pescara and Chietino, Zappella is typical of the Bergamasco, of Cividate to the Piano, Casazza, Calcio, Romano di Lombardy, Villa Di Serio and Gorlago, with a small strain also in Naples due perhaps to errors of transcription, Zappelli, very rare, should be originating in Lucca and Pisa, Zappulla is a native of Syracuse, Zappullo, very rare, it would seem the Salernitano, Castel San Giorgio and Mercato San Severino in particular, should derive all from a nickname tied to the craft of the farmer, while for Sicilian variants, there could be a derivation from the toponym Zappa (ME).
