THE LAST NAME

Filicicchia

In 2016, I married into a large Italian family and inherited a mouthful of a last name. I love watching others try to figure it out on their own before I throw them a bone and give it away. It’s seriously hilarious. If you haven’t tried it out yet, give it a go! I’ll help you phonetically below and provide a little insight on where the nickname “Cheeky” came from, so keep reading!

THAT’S IT! YOU’RE IN. YOU’VE GOT IT.

If we’re being honest, we can really credit a few of our super close friends for coining the '“cheeky” phrase to shorten our last name. We bow down to you.

I’ve also been known to be a little sassy and bold at times. So, it really just fits…!
