[Sca-cooks] Somewhat OT: Historical Household Names using Food

I didn't know households could BE registered. I've always been told they were entirely unofficial, and not recognized by the SCA as a whole.

De: SCA wise, there are only 49 registered households. It would seem that
most households do not register their name and usually with the
unregistered, the head of the household registers the device under their
name and not the household if they register at all. As for an Italian
household in period. Households were named after the head of the household.
It would be a coincidence if the name translated into a food item and not
that the household would name themselves after a food item. There is a slim
chance that you saw/read - food/household but possible, I mean I have seen a
surname that translates into drinking glasses and the surname Cucinotta
which translates (AFAIU) into kitchen. Hope this makes sense.
