Creti would seem to be a surname from Salento, with a stock also in Romagna and Tuscany, which could derive from the toponym Creti di Budrio in the Bolognese area, and Creti di Cortona in the Arezzo area, or from the Creti senesi, a stock in Rome and Milan, probably secondary. , to the south the surname could derive from the Latin name Cretheus or directly from the original Greek name ??????? we remember with this name the mythological grandfather of the famous Jason of the Golden Fleece, Creteo, the hero of Thessalus, son of Aeolus and Enarete, brother of Salmoneus and Atamante, but most probably derives from the name of Creti (Crete), the ancient name of the city of Candia, the current ????????., probable place of origin of the progenitor.
