There are 22 cities towns and villages with people having the Pecchillo surname 14 are in the Napoli region (campania) and tyhe remaining 8 are in the north of Italy. If you gfo to www.paginebianche.it and put in the surname inthe first line and Camapnioa for the entire region of the 14 towns and then click CERCA you will see all 14 towns with the surname . Peter

As for the surname meaning. The closest word to Pecchillo is pecchia which is a Bee. There is no word or surname Pecchillo and the surname is most likely local in origin. Sorry that is as far as I can go with facts. Anything else i would be speculation and unverified. Peter

Do you have e-mail where you have to pay by the letter?

Can't help this....but how much time do you save writing like this?

Now assume that someone who is Italian and has a limited grasp of English might read this note....how well do you think they understand your message? What are the chances they will respond?

Fortunately for you, Peter had no problem....
