Reply to: Mazzocchi ...Italian name by Sean Foglai
Apparently the origim of this surname is not very clear.
In Italy Mazzocchi is regional both in North o the country an in South, near Naples.
It is possible that it comes from a nickname like those mentioned or even from a dialect word: a venetian one: "mazoco" that is "head".
Another possibility is that this surname comes from an old latin name
"Mezochius", according to an italian site.
