Caratozzola, which would seem unique, is probably the result of a wrong transcription of the surname Caratozzolo, which is specific to the people of Reggio, in particular Bagnara Calabra, Gioia Tauro, Scilla, Palmi and San Ferdinando, with a stock also in Messina, and which should derive from a Greek nickname originating from a hypocoristic form of the term ?????? karatò (head of the head), perhaps to emphasize a peculiarity of the head of the founders.
