Origin of the name Graggo

This surname derives from Gracco, the name of a very small village in Friaul, which is a political district  in the northern part of Italia.  Before transferring names from the friulanish language in the  italian language the name was Grach (speak: Grack) or Gracch. Gracco lies in the near of Rigolato/Tolmezzo (province Udine, Friaul). The inhabitants of the place are shure that the name comes from the name of a very famous Roman aristocratical family, the  Gracchen  (the most well-known representatives are Gaio and Tiberio Gracco (= Gaius and Tiberius Gracchus). The origin of the name is the reason for the different ways of spelling:  Gracc, Grach, Grack, Gracco, Graggo. Since 1744 the family is living in Bavaria. At this time Johann Peter Gracc(o) married Domenica Gussetti and he was accepted  in Munich as a citizen.
