The Pasco surname is derived from the Italian word "pasqua," which means "Easter," the Christian holiday that celebrates the resurrection of Christ. As a surname, Pasco was most likely originally a nickname for a person who was born on Easter day. The word "pasqua" is derived from the ecclesiastical Latin word "Pascha," which in turn comes from the Greek "Pascha" and the Hebrew "Pesah" (through the Aramaic "Pisha"). Pesah was the holiday which celebrated the liberation of the people of Israel from the slavery in Egypt and coincided with the Christian holiday.
The surname Pasco was first found in the area of Venice, although branches of this surname are found in Genoa, Naples, Sicily, Ferrara, Florence, Bologna and Siena.
