  2. Etymological origin of Italian surname: Zoccolanti

Etymological origin of Italian surname: Zoccolanti


Absolutely very rare, the former is perhaps due to the Modena area, while the latter seems to originate from the area on the border between Arezzo, Perugia and Pesaro, and should derive from nicknames originating from the archaic term zoccolante, often used in ancient times to refer to the Franciscan friars, perhaps to characterize a particular behavior of the progenitor.
