Search Etymological origin of Italian surnames


Cucuzza is typically Sicilian, from Palagonia, Grammichele, Caltagirone and Catania in the Catania area, from Palermo, Carini, Montelepre and Belmonte Mezzagno in the Palermo area. of Scicli in the Ragusa area, and of Rosolini in the Syracuse area, Cucuzzella, much rarer, is always Sicilian, of Vittoria and Comiso in the Ragusa area, and of Ribera and Casteltermini in the Agrigento area, Cucuzzo, almost unique, is probably the result of errors in transcription of the Latium registry offices, should derive, directly or through hypocorisms, from nicknames originating from the Sicilian dialectal term cucuzza (pumpkin), perhaps to highlight physical details such as the elongated shape of the head or behavioral characteristics of the progenitor.
