First name origin & meaning:
Japanese: Ten thousand
Last name origins & meanings:
- Italian (Sicily): unexplained. It may be from the Albanian
personal name Maqo. Derivation from a Greek name ending in
-akis, which has been suggested, is implausible.
- Japanese: ‘town’ or ‘street’, not common in Japan. Some
occurrences in America could be shortened versions of longer names
beginning with this element.
