Cicero Name Meaning
Southern Italian: from cicero ‘pea’ (Latin cicer, ciceris ‘chickpea’, ‘lentil’), possibly a metonymic occupational name for someone who grew or sold peas, or perhaps as a nickname for someone with a carbuncle or pimple. The Roman republican lawyer and statesman Cicero was so named because he had a growth resembling a chickpea on his face.
