Tanzella, very rare, is of the Bari, of Casamassima, Bari and Noicattaro, Tanzelli, almost unique, is of Bari, Tanzi seems to have more strains, in Parma, in Frosinate and Bari and perhaps even one in Milan, Tanzilli has a large latium strain in Rome and in Frusinate Roccasecca, Sora and Castrocielo, and a smaller strain in Naples, Tanzillo is typical of the Neapolitan, of Acerra above all and of Cimitile, Nola and Naples, with a strain also to Succivo in the Caserta and to Solopaque in the Beneventano, Tanzini, is specific of the area between Florence and Siena, Tanzino is practically unique, they should derive, directly or through hypochoral forms, even dialectal, from the apheresis of medieval names like Costanzo or Lattanzio.
