Bissacco Family: History and Genealogy

What does Bissacco mean?

Coat of Arms: Bisacco
Bisacco Coat of Arms

According to several sources, Bissacco is based on the word Bissacca, a substantive from a Veneto dialect that means pocket or bag sewn in the internal part of the clothes. This pocket or bag was used to carry handkerchiefs, pocket books, keys, money, etc. It could be a nickname given to someone who was not in the mood to help (keeping the hands always inside the pockets), to someone who spends all his money or to someone who keeps all his money inside the pockets (do not spend money). Bissacca, in regular Italian, is spelled Bisaccia.

Bissaco, Bisacco or Bissacco?

Bissacco is the most common in Padova. I found, in Arre/PD, some people who had their surnames changed to Bissaco due to errors in the certificate of birth. Almost all the Bissacco descendants in Brazil have their surnames changed to Bissaco too. Some researchers assert that Bisacco is a mispelling of Bissacco too.

Bisaccia, Bissacca and Bisacca

As Bissacco cames from the word Bissacca, and Bissacca means Bisaccia in Italian, it's possible that these names have the same origin. So, it is not impossible that people who has those surnames have the same ancestors. But it was not proved yet.
