Varese has strains in Lombardy, Piedmont, Liguria, Neapolitan and Puglia, Varesi seems to be specific to South Milan, Piacenza and Parma, Varesio is undoubtedly Piedmontese, Dell'astigiano and Turin, Varisi is almost unique, may derive from place names such as Varese (VA) or Varese Ligure (SP), but more likely derive from modifications of the name of Celtic origins Varisius of which we have an example in a paper venditionis of the year 1161 in Belforte in the Varesotto: "Anno Belle incarnacionis thousandth cent Sexagesimo Sixth, canteens Septembris, Indicione Quintadecima.

", we find traces of these cognitive-ominizations in northern Italy at least since the beginning of 1600. Additions provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Varese, Varesi derive from Varese, which dates back to the Celtic ' var ' referred to the vicinity of the lake or variensis by the name of Latin name Varius. It is also Sicilian surname that according to Caracausi II 1687 could come from the ethnic of Bari.
