Panico was a surname derived from an occupation. Occupational surnames, which are less common than other types of surnames in Italy, date back to the feudal era. The surname Panico is an occupational name for a a baker, or someone who sold bread having been derived from the Italian word "pane," which means "bread" and from the Latin "panis," with the root of the meaning being derived from the verb "to feed or nourish."
