Taricco is definitely Piedmontese, of Narzole, Cuneo, Dogliani, Fossano, Bra, Cherasco, Mondovì and Alba in Cuneese, with a secondary strain in Turin, Tarizzo, much less widespread, is of Turin, Favria, Torino and Rivarolo Canavese, Tarigo, decidedly the rarest, is of Savona, of Stella and Varazze, should derive from the hypochoral dialectal alterations of an apheretic form of the medieval Germanic name Authari, in turn derived from the terms AUD (clan, lineage) and Hari (army, but also defense), with the meaning of Defender, protector of his own lineage.
