Casottana, practically unique, is due to a transcription error by Cassottana, which, very rare, is specific to Genoa, it should indicate that the family, compared to the inhabitants who gave the nickname to the forefather, lived in a lower area, in fact the term sottana indicated this fact and cà sottana is the equivalent of lower house, it can also be, more simply that they take the name from toponyms, with the name Cassottana there are places like that near Cicagna in the Genoese or that of Monterosso al Sea in the Cinque Terre.
