The name Morucchio is a patronymic surname, created from the personal name Mauro, which is itself derived from the Latin name Maurus. Patronymic surnames were created from the name of the bearer's father or relative, and gradually during the Middle Ages, these names became fixed hereditary surnames.

Morucchio Early Origins



The surname Morucchio was first found in Modena (Etruscan: Mutna; Latin: Mutina; Modenese: Mňdna), around the year 1179.
