Famiglia bergamasca che, nel 1829, ottenne l’ascrizione alla nobiltà di Bergamo, per ambo i sessi, in persona di: Cipriano, di Francesco Antonio, di Francesco, coi figli: Caterina, Giovanni e Antonietta ved. Bonanomi. Guido, di Zaccaria, di Cipriano, coi fratelli: Maria, Margherita, Cipriano e Osvaldo. Cipriano, di Antonio, di Francesco Antonio, con le sorelle: Vittoria ved. Pasi, e Bianca, in Cameroni. Tale cognominizzazione dovrebbe derivare, attraverso modificazioni linguistico-dialettali, dal termine cucco, ossia l’uccello cuculo. Che i membri della famiglia Cucchi siano noncuranti delle cose volgari, ripromettendosi dalle sole loro energie la dovuta ricompensa, lo provano i documenti fino ad oggi conosciuti come il Dizionario Storico-Blasonico del commendatore G.B. di Crollalanza che ne ha raccolte le tracce lasciate dalla famiglia in quelle città ove ebbe dimora ricoprendo cariche legislative, militari o altro, contribuendo non poco alla riuscita di quei documenti utili alla scoperta di questa famiglia. . Riguardo a questo cognome abbiamo ritrovato ulteriori informazioni storiche in altri archivi. Purtroppo in lingua originale Inglese. : This Italian Last Name of CUCCHI was extrapolated from the very popular medieval given name FRANCIS, (from the Latin Franciscus). The numerous diminutives almost all belong to the given name FRANCIS, which owed much of its popularity during the Middle Ages to the fame of St. Francis of Assisi, (1181-1226), whose baptismal name was actually Giovanni, who was nicknamed Francisco. He was the Italian religious founder of the Franciscan Order, born in Assisi, the son of a wealthy merchant. He was remarkable for his happiness and love of life, and although he joined a military expedition, he was halted by a dream and returned to devote himself to the care of the poor and sick. He was canonized by Pope Gregory 1X in 1228, and in 1980 was designated patron saint of ecology. The name is also spelt CHECCHI, CHIECO, CECCOLI, CICCONETTI, CECCONI, CICCOTTINI and CECCHETTI. As the agricultural depression of southern Italy worsened towards the end of the 19th century, people started to escape to the New World. The exodus started in earnest in 1887 with Brazil and other parts of Latin America being the original destinations. By 1893, the economy had improved in the United States and people headed there from Italy in greater and greater numbers. In 1898 there were more Italian immigrants to the USA than from any other state. In the post war era, more than a quarter of Italians left the state for a new life. They joined a flood of immigrants to America which was averaging a million a year in the pre war years. The origins of Italian last names are not clear, and much work remains to be done on medieval Italian records. It seems that stable bynames, in some cases hereditary, were in use in the Venetian Republic by the end of the 10th century. The typical Italian Last Name endings are ‘i’ and ‘o’, the former being characteristic of northern Italy. The singular form ‘o’ is more typical of southern Italy. A noble member of the name was Henrico CECCHETTI (1850-1928) the Italian dancer, teacher and choreographer, born in Milan. He is most closely associated with Russia, where he worked from 1887-1902. After performing in Italy, London and the United States, he settled in Russia, first as dancer with the Imperial Ballet, and then as teacher developing the talents of stars like Anna Pavlova….
