This paper explores the extent to which suffixes in Italian family names differ from their use in the Italian lexicon. On the grounds of the existing onomastic literature, it provides a classification of suffixes in Italian family names, distinguishing between "lexical" and "onimic" formatives. In a case study, 110 family names apparently deriving from a lexical base Mazza "club" are analyzed both from a synchronic and a diachronic point of view; in particular, this analysis illustrates the notion of "schema" in the suffixation of family names.
