Panagiotis Zizos is my grand father. He was born in Galaxideon, Greece August 27, 1890. Hoe can I find out more about him? He has a brother Thomas Efthimios, born December 10, 1894, in Greece. I would like to learn who their parents are. Can anyone help?

I was tempted to write yesterday but I controlled myself. Today is another story. I find Greek names very interesting and challenging.
Zizos is a very unusual name and theoretically at least does not exist. Practically of course it does, after about 1880.
Because it starts with the letter "Z" it is safe to say it is not Greek, but obviously the family lived in Greece. The question is: What was the original name?
The closest name I could find are (My Database is the worlds largest): Zizinios (from Chios); Zizilas from Hydra; Zinos (Crete, Venice); Zinzi (Greece and Italy (Rimini); Zio (Venice); Sizi (Italy); Zissi (Greece) & Zissopoulos (Greece).
Only wives names will help you further. (To make things worse, Zizo is also a common name in North Europe, (Baltic States).
Regarding Panagiotis father's name, the answer is in hi brothers name: Euthymios Zizos, probably born around 1868.

Regarding the name Zizos, my guess is: The original name was "GHISO" (Plural "GHISI") (Lords of Tenos; Lords of Andros; Lords of Amorgos; etc etc.)

There are some people with the name Zizos listed in the greek white pages. There is also an entry from Amfissa, which is near Galaxidi. The spelling is ZHZOS, with the greek letter H.

What is the entry in Amfissa, near Galaxidi? That sounds interesting.

Why do you say that Only wives names will help you further?

Panagiotis Zizos, he is my grandfather, born in Galaxidi, Greece. He has siblings, George Zissimos Zizos; Zissimos Zizos, born about 1891 also in Galaxidi; Thomas Efthimios Zizos born December 10, 1894.

Family rumor says there is a "Mareno" name in the background of the family. What do you make of that?

Does this help??
