I now live in N Italy, very near Croatia. I have learned of the Croatian name Cikot. The C is pronounced much like the English Z; so Cikot and Zicot would sound all but identical.
I have learned Cikot and several variants (Ciko, Cikojevic etc) are very common names in the mountainous Croatian region north and east of Istria.........
Still looking for more. Since it it is only 2 hours drive from here, I hope to drive there and explore for 2 or 3 days in April.
kind regards, Brian
