Search Etymological origin of Italian surnames


Capilupi, very very rare, would seem to be of Calabrian origin, in particular Catanzaro and Pentone in Catanzaro, Capilupo, much rarer, is from the Cosenza area, Capolupi, absolutely rare, it is present only in the north, where Capiluppi is rather common, has a lineage between Mantua, Reggio Emilia and Modena, although in some cases it may be the result of incorrect transcriptions of the surname of the surname Capolupo, which has a stock in the Avellino area, in Avellino, Capriglia Irpina, Sant'Angelo a Scala and Summonte, and in Naples, one, probably secondary, in Rome, one in Matera and one in the Cosenza area of San Donato di Ninea, these surnames should derive from the Italianization of the Lombard name, but also widely used by the Swabians, Hauptwolf, which has the meaning of first among the wolves, of wolf of wolves, that is of great glorious leader, if we think of the value attributed to the figure of the wolf among the Germanic peoples.
