Re: Hecei, Larko, Margherio...Can anyone tell me what these names mean ?
Margherio is from PIEDMONT, the region of TURIN (Torino) NORTH-WEST Italy. It is a very very rare surname.
I am not sure about its origin: it could be an occupational surname coming from a local dialectic word "marghé" a man who sells milk.
Another possibility could be a locative surname. But I ignore whether there is a place with such a name.

Hecei or Hacei could be Turkish?
LARKO is hungarian. I don't know the meaning of such a surnames.

More guessing ...perhaps 'Larko' is related to Lawrence? ...from the 'laurel' tree.

Maybe Margherio related to 'Marc' or 'Marcus' ...Latin for 'warlike' ... My IE roots book has 'merk' as a Latin root meaning to decay or wither ... and an Italic root meaning commerce, as in market ...again just guesses ..

Lastly, Hecei clue ...
