Juliette Gréco was a French actress and cabaret singer.

Her father, Louis Gerald Greco, was of Corsican Italian descent. Her mother, Juliette Lafeychine (Gaubry), was French, from Bordeaux. Juliette was married to pianist Gérard Jouannest, until his death. She had a daughter with her former husband, actor Philippe Lemaire.

Juliette’s paternal grandfather was Laurent Greco (the son of Giuseppe Rosario Greco and Angèle Maestracci). Laurent was born in Belgodère, Haute-Corse, Corsica.

Juliette’s paternal grandmother was Marie Irène Lamoretti (the daughter of Luigi Lamoretti and Marie-Françoise Pieve). Juliette’s grandmother Marie Irène was born in Bastia, Haute-Corse, Corsica. Luigi was born in Parma, Emilia-Romagna, Italy.

Juliette’s maternal grandfather was named Bernard Lafeychine.

Juliette’s maternal grandmother was named Marie Gaubry.

    She definitely had no Greek ancestry (at least recent) as Wikipedia reports.

    Her surname, Greco (means “Greek) is common in Southern Italy and in Top 10 of Italian surnames overall. With a name like Giuseppe Rosario, her great-grandfather was probably Sicilian or something (and not typical Corsican of Tuscan or Ligurian descent), but not Greek anyway.
