QUestion about last name

Postby lactosefree » 19 Mar 2009, 04:03

I would like to know what region the last name Maccini comes from im pretty sure its Northern italian, but i could be wrong. My mother was born in Basillicata so i know where shes from. I would just like to know where the general populations of Maccini's came from i know the surname googles under Machio <- not the right spelling and wrong.

The surname Maccini is not listed in the Italian surname dictionary and neither is the Machio which significies that the name(s) are local in origin or foreign, imported into Italy and italianized. The concentrated center for the surname Maccini may indicate its origin but that is anecdotal. =Peter=
