Meaning & History

Meaning uncertain. It is possibly derived from (or related to) Italian frasca meaning "bough, branch", which might possibly indicate that the surname had first started out as a nickname for someone who worked as a woodcutter or as a forester. It could also be derived from the medieval unisex name Frasca, which is said to be a short form of Francesco (male) and Francesca (female). And lastly, there is a possibility that the surname is derived from Frascati, which is the name of a town in central Italy.

A known bearer of this surname is the American former professional baseball player John Frascatore (b. 1970).
