Etymological origin of Italian surname: Zummo


Typical of the Zumbo reggino, while it is Sicilian, especially of the Palermo Zummo, both should derive from nicknames originated from the Calabrese dialectal word zumbu (large bump or large knot of a tree), illustrious traces of these surnames we find in the second half of 1600 with Gaetano Giulio Zummo gentleman Siracusan, anatomical wax sculptor.
