Forino Family History
Forino Name Meaning
from a short form of the personal name Cristoforino, a pet form of Cristoforo (see Cristofaro). perhaps a nickname for a rogue or thief, from Latin fur, furis (Italian furino ‘cunning’, ‘wily’). This sense is believed to lie behind the place name Forino, in Avellino province.
