Erre, typically Sardinian, from Sassari and Gallura, should derive from a soprannomne originated from the Sardinian word erre, in turn derived from the Latin verres, with the meaning of boar or breeding pig, perhaps indicating in the progenitor a pig farmer. additions provided by Giuseppe Concas ERRE: verre, berre, su èrre, su vèrru. In northern Sardinia it is the pig or even the wild boar: here in Campidano it is called su porcu or su sirboni. Montiferro or Montiverro or Montiverru: Curadoria of: it was an administrative district of the judicial kingdom of Torres, which had as its capital Gurulis Nova, now Cuglieri. Originally it was Monti Verru, meaning mountain of boar or wild boar, corrupted to Montiferru. In the countryside of Cuglieri there are still the ruins of the Castle of Montiverru and medieval inhabited center, also called Casteddu 'Ezzu. We also mention Verre or Verri, the disappeared town. The village or villa - bidda -, located in the countryside of Olbia, in the medieval period belonged to the Curadoria of Civita, in the Giudicato kingdom of Gallura. he then became part of the overseas territories of Pisa. From 1324 it was part of the Aragonese Catalan kingdom of Sardinia. Following devastation due to the wars between the kingdom of Arborea and the Aragonese before and between it and the Republic of Genoa, the town was abandoned around 1358. In the ancient documents of the language and history of Sardinia we find the surname in the outputs Verre and Verri, preceded by> de <to indicate, probably, the origin. For example, among the signatories of the Peace of Eleonora, LPDE of 1388, are: Verri (de) Petro, jurato villas Seercela (disappeared village - Contrate Partis de Montibus); Verre (de) Paulus, villas Sasseri.
