Scelba, very very rare, it would seem specific to Caltagirone in Catania and Mistretta in Messina, Scerba, almost unique, it would seem Sicilian, Scerbo has a small Neapolitan strain and one in the Catanzaro, Marcellinara, Catanzaro and carafe of Catanzaro And in the island of Capo Rizzuto, Cureo and Crotone in Crotonese, a hypothesis on the derivation of these surnames suggests that they can derive from nicknames originated from the medieval Germanic scher (mole), while a second proposes a Francoalsatian origin from a Nickname born from the term Scherer (barber or shearing of animals).
