Erami, absolutely rare, is from Milan, Eramo has a Lazio stock in Rome, Carpineto Romano (RM) and Alvito (FR), in Aprilia (LT and in Grotte di Castro (VT), and an Apulian stock in Barletta and, always in the Bari area, at Gioia Del Colle, Bari, Gravina In Puglia, Altamura and Sammichele Di Bari, a stock in Cerignola (FG) and in Mottola (TA), Erasmi has a stock in the Viterbo area and in the Roman area and one between Teramo and Pescara, Erasmo is typically Abruzzese, from Teramo and Pescara, additions provided by Stefano Ferrazzi Erami, very rare, found only in the Milanese area, Eramo, present from the north to the south of the country, is more typically central south, with major stocks in the Aquila area. Roman, in the frusinate, in the Latin dialect, in the Bari area, in the Taranto area and, to a lesser extent, in the Caserta area, both of these surnames derive from the medieval name Eramo (better known in the Erasmus variant), that is the Italianization of the Greek personal Erasmos, with the meaning of loved, desired, in some cases, all avia, the derivation from the toponym Santeramo in Colle, in the province of Bari, is not excluded (the very spread of the name Eramo, moreover, is probably due to the cult of Sant'Eramo or Erasmo; see also Santeramo). As far as the surnames in question are concerned, therefore, these are the surnames or personal names of the founders or of the nicknames attributed to them (that is to say, that is, a toponymic origin).
