Chirico Early Origins



The surname Chirico was first found in Calabria, a province at the southern tip of Italy which, though not on the island of Sicily was part of the Kingdom of Two Sicilies. The name is frequently found in other parts of the south of Italy, though some members of the family did move further north. Those that remained in the south kept the southern suffix "-o," while those that moved north adopted the northern convention of ending their name in "-i." Many surnames were taken from the occupation of the person who first took the name. This name is one such name, coming from the Italian word "chierico," meaning "altar boy."
