Del Vecchio Family History

Del Vecchio Name Meaning

Italian (Del Vecchio) and Jewish (from Italy): literally ‘of or belonging to the old one’ (see Vecchio), hence a name denoting the son, associate, or servant of a man dubbed ‘The Old Man’. According to tradition this name was taken by various Jewish families long established in Italy (allegedly since the capture of Jerusalem by the Romans in ad70) to distinguish themselves from later arrivals who migrated there on being expelled from the Iberian Peninsula after 1492.
