Cocco Family History

Cocco Name Meaning

Italian: from Coccus, a medieval personal name and nickname of uncertain derivation. De Felice speculates that it may be derived from a term of endearment, a regional variant of cucco ‘cuckoo’, also ‘old man’, or from còcco ‘egg’ (or a regional variant such as Sardinian kókku). Alternatively, it may be from Greek kokkos ‘grain’, ‘seed’, ‘pip’.
