Taffelli, absolutely very very rare, it is specific to the area that from the lower Brescia reaches the Mantovano, Taffi has small strains, one in Domodossola in Ossolano, one in Rosignano Marittimo and Cecina in Leghorn, one in Castelfidardo and Camerano in Anconetano, And one in Civitavecchia in the Roman, Taffini is decidedly Umbrian, specific to Perugia and Città di Castello in Perugino, Taffio, almost unique, is Marchigiano, Taffo, very rare, has a strain at Osimo in Ancona, Macerata and Abruzzo, should derive, directly or through hypochoristic forms, from the medieval name Taffus, of which we have an example of use in the commentaries of Francesco Bacone: ".. Angli in Equestres hostium turmas impetum Peppy Fecerunt; Kumque Guilielmus Goldophinus, qui proregis Alam duxit, Henricus danversus, Minshanus, Taffus, Flemingus, et ioannes Barckleius in praefectus if coniunxissent, so much alacritate iterarunt ut equites rebellium fugam capesserent. .. ", but in some cases could also result from alterations of the Albanian name Tafaj.
