Absolutely very rare is specific to Nuraminis (CA), derives from a nickname originated from the word Sardinian Tidìli (cercine) The circle of cloth that women put on the head to facilitate the transport of orci or other weights. Additions provided by Giuseppe Concas TIDILI: Tidìli in Campidanese, Tetìle in the central dialects, Tedìle in Logudorese is the cercine, but it does not derive clearly from the Latin circinus, but from a combination of the Latin verb tegere = cover and from the noun texstilis = Drape: > Tegetexstyle > Tegetile > Tetile. There is also the voice Kirkìle, always with the meaning of cercine, but that derives clearly from the Latin circinus, or everything from the Italian cercine. With the Tidìle (Cercine) They lead in the head (or rather they bore) the baskets (Cròbis, Crobèddas, Cadìnus and Canistèddas), for example, but also containers with cloths, to be washed and cleaned, scivèddas and Bagnèras. We did not find the surname in the ancient documents we consulted. Currently the surname Tidìli is present in 12 Italian municipalities, of which 7 in Sardinia: Nuraminis 25, Cagliari 16, Sestu 3, etc.
