Morotto, very rare, has a stock in Ostiglia in the Mantua area, could derive from nicknames originating from the progenitor's dark complexion or hair. but we remember that Morotto was also a name in the late Middle Ages, for example in the Modena area in the 16th century, Morotto delle Carpinete was at the head of a faction opposed to the Estensi, and could therefore also derive from the proper name of the progenitor.
