Barbacci has a stock in Tuscany, especially in Florence, one in Umbria in Gubbio and Perugia and in Terni in Terni Amelia, Narni and Penna In Teverina, Barbaccia has a small stock in Ancona, one in Terni, and the main stock in Sicily in Palermo, Barbata, quite rare, is Sicilian, from Palermo and Trapani, Barbatti is typical of the Varese area, Barbazza has a Venetian nucleus between Venetian and Trevisano and a strain, probably secondary, in the Milanese, Barbazzi, practically unique, is Lombard, but it is probably due to a transcription error of the previous one, all these surnames should derive from the Gens plebea Barbatia or from its noble name Barbatius, Barbatia, but it is also possible that in some cases they derive from nicknames originating from a particular beard of the progenitor.
