Petroccelli, almost unique, is from Basilicata, Petrocci is almost unique, Petrocelli is typically southern, has a stock in Rome, one in the Isernia area, in Acquaviva d'Isernia, Isernia and Rocchetta in Volturno, a Campania stock in Salerno and Sala Cosilina and in Naples, a Lucanian stock in the Matera area of Bernalda, Montalbano Jonico and Policoro and in the Potentino area in Moliterno, Viggiano, Senise and Grumento Nova, and an Apulian stock in Altamura in the Bari area and in Taranto, Petrucci is widespread throughout the center Italy, Petruccelli has a stock in Rome and at Santi Cosma and Damiano, Latina, Minturno and Formia in the Latin, at Baselice and at Castelfranco in Miscano in the Benevento area, at Sessa Aurunca and Castel di Sasso in the Caserta area, at Nocera Inferiore in Salerno, but the nucleus is in the province of San Marco in San Marco In Lamis, Foggia, San Severo, San Giovanni Rotondo, Lucera and Biccari, Petruccello, also from the Foggia area, is unique, as is Petrucciello, who seems to be from Campania, Petrucello, absolutely rare, it would seem Salentine, Petruccio, very rare, it would appear in the area between Caserta and Neapolitan, Petruccioli is typical of the Arezzo area, Perugia, Arezzo and Anghiari in the Arezzo area, and Foligno, Giano dell'Umbria, Norcia, Montefalco, Spello and Spoleto Perugian, and from Rome, Petrucciolo, almost unique, is Neapolitan, all derive, directly or through hypocorisms, from the medieval name Petrucius, of which we have an example in a deed dated 1331 in Paternopoli (AV): "... Petrucio de Sus , filio et heredi quondam Americi de Sus militis, senioris, assensus ... ", but a possible derivation from the compound name Pietro Uccello cannot be excluded, especially for the Apulian strains. We find traces of these surnames in Siena in 1600: "... Othoni Petruccio Senensi ejusdem Religionis, curaturis, ut dixerunt, authenticari facere memorias ...".
