The Cirino surname is derived from the place name Cirillo, located in south central Italy. As such, it is classed as a local name, derived from a place-name where the original bearer once resided or held land. Often Italian local surnames bore the prefix "di," which signifies emigration from one place to another, but does not necessarily denote nobility.In the local dialect of Cirillo, the place-name is pronounced Cercelle, while natives are called Circellese. Alternatively, the surname Cirillo may come from a personal name, ultimately derived from the Greek mythological name Circe.

Cirino Early Origins



The surname Cirino was first found in the year 1153, when records show Filippo Ciria of Cremona, who was made the Bishop of Capua.
