SURNAME: Ricchimuzzi

Postby adalea » 07 Jun 2009, 05:46

My great-great-grandmother's surname was Ricchimuzzi. However, I can't find other surnames like this. I've noticed it looks like two surnames combined, Ricci & Muzzi/muzzo.

Does anyone know about this surname Ricchimuzzi or if it was a different spelling or if her father's surname would have been different.

warm regards.

Hi Adelea,

I think Ricchimuzzi is the correct cognome. However, as you have found out, it does not seem to exist now. Perhaps someone will prove me wrong.
