Sound this out!
Fulcheeeeeeno,
Full-chee-knee,
Full-key-knee,
Full-key-no.

Of course they all work but did you know that:

Rocco Fulchini has traced our family history into the early 1400's.
He has noted that our family name as spelled in Gesualdo,
Fulchini and sounded out as Full-key-knee
actually used to be spelled Fulcini ( note that there is no 'H')
many years before.

According to his research a progenitor of ours was Lazaro Fulchini
pronounced as Full-chee-knee.
Apparently he was a mayor or some type of official
where the family lived in the early 1400's in Parma...
Yes, Parma and not Gesualdo.
After some type of political dispute he left the Parma area
in the 1400's and moved south to Gesualdo,
he changed his last name from
Fulcini (say Full-Chee-nee) to Fulchini ( say Full-key-nee)

So we all started out at least to this point in history as Fulcini's (Full-chee-nee's)

Thank you Rocco!
