The surname Porciello derives from the Italian word "porco," meaning "hog; " as such, it may have evolved from a nickname for someone "pig-like" in some manner, or perhaps as an occupational name for someone who worked with pigs.

Porciello Early Origins



The surname Porciello was first found in Umbria, where the earliest recorded family bearing this name were a patrician family living in Gubbio in 1171. In 1290, soldier Arrigo di Porci took part in the destruction of Spolet, and his son Rodulfo was said to be lord of several of the King's castles. Leonardo Porcelli di Federico was a general in Monte Oliveto in 1516.
