Cecchinelli (surname found in Latium, Tuscany, Liguria and Lombardy) => possibly from Caecinus (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caecina_(gens)), an Etruscan gens. The Latin 'Cae' invariably becomes 'Ce' in Italian. The Latin 'ci' becomes 'chi' in Italian to keep the hard k sound. That gives the root 'Caecin' => 'Cecchin' + the '-elli' ending.






Cecchin......my matron of honour's surname....from Padua and sometimes Mestre ...............slang is Cecco, short for Francesco

Barbato .............ato endings in surnames originate in the Veneto , same with igo, otto, lin and olo to name a few .............name was Barbo ....a barbarian
you can have also, Barbotto, Barbolin and Barbigo ( pure venetian surname, which igo endings are usually )

Postumia is a town and a major road in Veneto ( south of Montebelluna ) ...the road is roman built and joined in the past Lombardy to Friuli through Veneto

or
Zane ( Giovanni ) became Zanotto, Zanolo, Zanato or Zanatta ( from Giovanna )
or
Zorsi ( giorgio ) became Zorzon ( big George )

For Cecchinelli, the highest concentration seems to be in La Spezia and the the Lunigiana. Some of the ones in Lombardia and Lazio will be migrants from there, although probablyhttp://www.gens.info/italia/it/turismo-viaggi-e-tradizioni-italia?t=cognomi&cognome=Cecchinelli&x=39&y=14#.XoOkdohKhPY not all.

When you go to the link you can click the second map of Italy to get another and perhaps better view of it.

It's not a Genova and West Liguria thing at all. It's the La Spezia province and Lazio, and then Lunigiana.

You can also click on the U.S. map: Massachusetts wins.

Yes, also Sarzana 4, Arcola 3, Vezzano Ligure 1.

Those are my maternal grandfather's areas.

I knew as soon as I saw the name: it's a very "local" one in our parts, especially concentrated around the "bocca" of the Magra, not the northern stretches, although it picks up again north of the Appennini.

Cecchini, which is a variant, is a very common surname in Italy, still north of Rome, and with a huge presence in Northwestern Toscana and the Romagna.

Whether the men all carry this y lineage is another story.
