My husband is Antonio Capparelli, we live in Tuscany but his family comes from the south of Italy, Calabria. The surname it is not typical from that region they have serched and they probably come from France. However my father's husband has a lot of brothers and relatives all over the USA, Canada and France.
All the Capparelli's that are in Italy now they live her in Tuscany and in Calabria.
If you tell me more I can try to help you.

Hi, my name is Chris Capparell. Originally my name was Capparelli, but it was changed at Ellis Island. I am very curious about the meaning of the original name. I believe the name Smith refers to an ancestor's profession of being a blacksmith. I am curious about the equivalent for Capparelli. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Chris

I've heard two things about the name.

First, it is actually Albanian. The Arbëreshë people were Albanian soldiers and nobles who fled Albania in 1502 when the country was overrun by the Ottoman Empire and they were being forced to convert to Islam. They settled in Calabria. The first Capparelli was Martino Capparelli, he is one of the founders of Acquaformosa. Google on the city name and him and you can get more details.

However, having said that, when I was in Italy, many people told me that name has its origins in Napoli. So it's possible that even though the Capparelli are referred to in all historical texts as Albanians, perhaps they were simply Italian soldiers who fought for Albania then returned.
