Carone, absolutely Pugliese, with secondary strains also in Basilicata, Caronia, typically Sicilian, from Palermo with a stock also in the area of Mazara del Vallo (TP), should derive from the Greek name Charones, or even from the toponym Caronia (ME), but it is also possible derive from a nickname such as Ludovico Antonio Muratori in his Italian Antiquities, where in the XLI Dissertation of the Names and Nicknames of the Ancients he also mentions, together with many others, caronia (carrion) as a title of a certain Landulphus Caronia.
