Those days marriages were "pre-approved" by both families, so if the wife's family was a well known well established family then the husbands family was also of the same standard. You can also start your search from a different angle, the wife's family. Many Greeks don't understand that less than 10% of Greek males and females had a surname, the rest were only known by the fathers name or sometimes profession.

The accuracy of the information you have is also highly questionable.
You say:
He has siblings, George Zissimos Zizos. In Greek (those days) that translates to: GEORGE, SON OF ZISSIMOS, ZIZOS.
Than you mention another sibling called ZISSIMOS ZIZOS. (George's father's name?????)
Than you mention another sibling: Thomas Euthymios Zizos. That translates THOMAS SON OF EUTHYMIOS ZIZOS. Another father's name??
Is it possible that Thomas and George were 1st Cousins????

Another option I did not mention before is the possibility of the name being of Arabic origin. There is an arabic name (NOT MOSLEM) called AZIZ (male); AZIZA (female). AZIZ in Greek is AZIZOS -> ZIZOS.
There are hundreds of Arabic names used in Greece, for example Mora-i-tis (from Murat), etc.

Mareno = Marino from the Venetian name MARIN (known in Greece as Thalassinos). Marin is a very old (over 800 years old) family, well established in Greece.
