Maybe this name got also another history, probably in France, and from the region of GUASCOGNA. For this it was maybe Guasco, Guascone and means a guy full of himself.

I love it! It seems like the quintessential Spanish explorer/conquistador's name. The only thing I don't like is that the V gets changed to something that sounds like a B in Spanish, but doesn't that get fixed with Italian pronunciation?
