The Paparo surname is thought to have evolved from a nickname, from the Sicilian word "paparu," meaning "a young gander."

Paparo Early Origins



The surname Paparo was first found in Rome (Italian: Roma), the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. Little can be said in the space available which would do justice to the history of this beautiful city. From 1000 B.C, its history is a book of life itself. The buildings, culture, arts, cathedrals, churches, museums galleries hold untold treasures unequalled anywhere else in the world. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. Giovanni Paparoni (d. circa 1158) was made an Italian Cardinal by Pope Celestine II in 1133/4, and was a prominent papal legate in the Church's dealings with Ireland and Scotland at that time.
