Search Etymological origin of Italian surnames

CAVIGLIA

Caviglia is typically Ligurian, especially from Savona and Genoa and from Alessandria, it should derive from a nickname originated from the marine term ankle (small wooden cylinder, swollen in the center, which slips into an ankle to forcefully pull a cable or a sagola), perhaps due to the physical conformation of the progenitor or to a quarrelsome character of the same.
