The Persico surname is derived from the Italian word "persico," which means "peach tree," (from the Latin "persica"). As a surname, Persico may have been taken on by someone who lived near a peach tree or, as a habitational name, taken on from any of the numerous places named with this word in various parts Italy.

Persico Early Origins



The surname Persico was first found in Chieti, a city of Abruzzi. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
