Meaning & History

From Latin Regium, itself from Ancient Greek Ῥήγιoν (Rhéghion), of uncertain meaning. This is the name of a city in southern Italy.

Calabria, the name of the region in which the city is located, was added to the name after Italian Unification, as to distinguish it from Reggio Emilia.
