Cherici is specific to the area between Florence and Arezzo, Cherico has almost disappeared, perhaps Lombard, Chierici is typical of Parma and Reggio Emilia in particular, extremely rare, Del Cherico stands between Genoa and Livorno, Del Chierico, equally rare, would seem Tuscan or Marche, they all derive from names originating from the medieval term clericus (churchman, but not ordained a priest), the use of this name is traced for example in a Florentine script of the 1300s, where we read: "... Then brought him Gierozo of Cherico to chasa Niccholò said and but 'then no. we will have him for no bisongnio ..: ", but already from the 1000 principles of this cognominizzazione seem to already be present in Florence, in an act of 1022 an Alberto is cited Cherico, son of Acze.
