Name Meaning

Italian: probably from a diminutive of the personal name Ceri, which has various origins: it can be a topographic name ( see Cerro ); a nickname for someone with curly hair, from Latin cirrus ‘lock’, ‘curl’; alternatively, it can be from a diminutive of Ricciere, Riccieri (more commonly found as Rizziero), with loss of the first syllable; or from a short form of the Latin occupational name cereterius ‘wax seller’.
