Meaning & History

Probably from Old Italian capecchio, either denoting a type of cheap batting and, by extension, upholsterers, who worked with it, or as a nickname for a person with bristly hair or beard.

A famous bearer of this surname is Italian-American Nobel Prize for Chemistry recipient Mario Capecchi (1937–).
