Calogero Family History

Calogero Name Meaning

Southern Italian: from the personal name Calogero (from Greek Kalogeros, literally ‘handsome-old’). In Sicily especially this name was popularized by the cult of St. Calogero, a 5th-century martyr from Constantinople, who had stayed on the island for a time. Possibly a short form of any of various Greek family names based on the personal name Kalogeros (see 1), as for example Kalogeropoulos (with the patronymic suffix -poulos), Kalogerogiannis (with the personal name Giannis ‘John’), Kalogeromikhalis (with the personal name Mikhalis ‘Michael’). Compare Callas.
