Etymological origin of Italian surname: Zonzini


Zonzin is typically Venetian, from the Verona and Padua areas, from Cerea and Legnago in the Verona area and from Maserà di Padova and Due Carrare in the Padua area, Zonzini is typical of Verona and Casaleone in the Verona area, with some presence also in the Rimini area, should be of Venetian origin and could derive from a nickname based on the archaic Venetian dialect word zonzin (giuntino, small addition), but the most probable thing is that it is instead a rather apocalyptic apheretic Venetian dialect of the medieval name Bonaggiunta, which before would become by apheresis Giunta, then we would have the hypocoristic Giuntino that altered dialectically would later become Giontin is therefore Zonzin.
