The Pappalardo surname is derived from the Italian words "pappa," meaning "he who eats," and "lardo," which is "lard," or "bacon fat." This, it may have been originally been a nickname for a glutton, or perhaps for someone who only pretended to observe religious fasts.

Pappalardo Early Origins



The surname Pappalardo was first found in Naples, (Italian: Napoli, Latin: Neapolis) former capital of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in southern Italy, and the chief city of the province of Naples. It shares with Istanbul the claim to be the most beautiful city in Europe. Naples has 237 Churches and 57 Chapels. The National Museum and other galleries contain riches in art and artifacts. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. For a name to even be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
