Origins Available: Italian, Spanish


The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Gizzi is thought to be a patronymic name formed from a now unknown medieval given name. An older Latin form of the surname was Garsea, but the roots of this name may well pre-date the Latin era and come from the Basque language.

Gizzi Early Origins



The surname Gizzi was first found in Navarre, where the name is documented in the earliest records.
