Cotica, absolutely rare, would seem to have a stock in Milan and one between Ancona and Macerata, Cottica, only slightly less rare, has a line between Milan and Cremona, and one in Verbania, Cutica is almost unique and certainly Piedmontese, Cuttica, the more widespread in these surnames, typically Piedmontese, it has a strain in the Alessandria area of Alessandria and Quargnento, in Turin and Genoa, they should derive from nicknames originating from the dialectal term codega or cuttega, which signify both rind of the pig which is superficial of a grassy meadow , where the grass forms compact clumps retained by the grass roots. We find traces of these surnames in the second half of the 1500s in Milan, where the notary Gian Giacomo Cottica operates and in Cassago Brianza with a certain Clemenza Cottica, cited as a beneficiary in a will dated 1608 and, again in Bologna in 1645 we find Rector Milanese Giovannandrea Cottica : "Die 14 septembris 1645. Admodum Rev. Pater D. Andreas Cotica Rector huius domus advenit, suffectus loco".
