Origins of Panizzon

Postby panizzon » 20 Nov 2009, 07:31

My grandfather came to Australia in 1922. His name was Gaetano Panizzon. He was from Magre, Schio in the north. His family were from Monte Malo. I found someone who said that this name dates back many generations. I contacted this source but never received a reply.

Can anyone help me with the origins of this name. Is there anyone out there who is a Panizzon or is researching the name.

Any help would be apprecitated.

There is no listing for Panizzone inthe Italian surname dictionary. The surname while Italian is either imported and itaklianized or local in origin and based upon a nickname,occupation or anecdote. The closest that comes to mind in Italian is either Paninone or Paniuzza relating to sticky food which may or may not relate to Panizzon whichis as descriptive as the other two denoting an excess. =Peter=
