The surname Gattic is derived from the Italian word "gatto," meaning "a cat." It was no doubt taken on as a surname after having been a nickname for someone who was in some way cat-like.

Gattic Early Origins



The surname Gattic was first found in Sicily (Italian: Sicilia), the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
