MEANING OF MY NAME

Postby ginnyo » 04 Jul 2004, 07:15

I'm writing another message since I'm new at this site and am not sure my original message was sent.

I am interested in the meaning of my surname IACOBACCI. My mother thinks it means "here is a kiss"; however, I disagree. I think the IACOB
means JACOB from the latin for James.

If anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate an answer.

THANKS

Iacobacci coming from middle age name Jacopo/ Iacopo(also Iacobo in some regions)=Giacomo in currently italian language ; Iacobacci are an version of surname also are Giacomi, De Giacomo, Di Giacomo, Di Jacovo etc..more: Jacoboni, Iacovoni, Iacoponi, Giacoboni, Iacobucci etc..
are trace of this surname sure around 1530 year in Rome,on an Cola(=Nicola) Iacobacci in noble family's war between Orsini and Colonna princes , and (in ancient italian language) are this:
" Questo dunche nobile di sangue, di età grave, di costumi venerabile et in quel tempo nella nostra città un altro Catone, et Cola Iacobacci, persona honorata, quali come affettionati della fattione colonnese, ricevendo quei soldati che la sorte guidò in casa loro con uno animo lieto et con una fronte alegra, furono trattati in modo nelle robbe et nelle persone con i tormenti che a niuno altro Orsino fu fatto peggio, benchè quella turba non ne facesse differentia alcuna, purchè trovasse dove potere rapire et suggere il sangue quando mancava altra sustantia. Se intrattennero benchè pochi dì alcune case et palazzi, con ricever dentro di quei soldati che primi se li appresentorno...." (means that Cola Iacobacci very good person, help and ospite in it house in Rome, soldiers of Colonna prince in war Orsini soldiers) text coming from: Domenico Orano autor :"Il Diario di Marcello Alberini (1521-1536), in «Archivio della R. Società Romana di Storia Patria», vol. XVIII, fasc. 3-4 (1895), pp. 319-416 [il testo parte da p. 321]).

Ginny: You need to search your name at ancestry.com. I am told that mine, Iacobucci, means Iacob is a form of Jacob and that Ucci means son. I found much helpful info at that site. Your mom might be right. :lol:
