From Wikipedia:
minchia [ˈmiŋkja]: the same meaning as cazzo but notably a feminine name, it originates from Sicilian language;[13] nowadays it is common anywhere in Italy, where [i]t is also used as exclamation of surprise, or even appreciation.

cazzo (pl. cazzi) [ˈkattso]: literally penis, can be used as an exclamation or for emphasis
