Risi Family History
Risi Name Meaning
Italian: patronymic or plural form of Riso. Some bearers of the name in the U.S. were originally from St. Gallen, a canton in the German-speaking part of Switzerland; in some cases, therefore, the surname may be an altered spelling of Swiss German Rissi, which is probably a variant of Riss or Risse.
