Brocardo is a typical Piedmontese surname, with a strain in Murazzano in the Cuneo area and one probably secondary in Turin, it should derive from Brocardus, a name derived from the Provencal name Brochart, in turn derived from the medieval Germanic name Burcard composed of burg (fortified citadel, fortress). ) and hard (hard, resistant) meaning therefore strong and hard as a fortress., an example of the use of this name we find it in a cessionis et positionis in locum of 1191: "... Petrus de Cremia and Dominicus Macius and Ambroxius de Dubino and Brocardus filius Iohannis Ferrarii and Otta de Montanea ... ".
