Verderama, almost unique, is probably Campano, Verderame has a strain in Campania, in Naples, Salerno and Avellinese, and one Sicilian, between Trapani, Agrigento, Nyssa and Catania, Verderamo, absolutely rare, it would be the Leccese, Verdirame, Also rare, it has a strain between Ragusano and Catania, Verterame is from Isola di Capo Rizzuto in Crotonese, Verteramo, always Calabrian, is of Siderno and LOCRI in the Reggino. Integrations provided by Stefano Ferrazzi The origin of these surnames should be sought in the medieval name Verderame, which, together with its variants Verderamo, Verdirame, Verterame and Verteramo, stems from an adaptation of the German staff Bertram, with the meaning of Shining or Illustrious Crow (see Beltrama and Berterame). With regard to the last names in question, therefore, these are the cognominizations of the personal name of the ancestor. Integrations provided by Giovanni Vezzelli Incorrect interpretation of the Bongioanni that derives the surname Verderame from the Germanic Bertram. In fact this surname is a compound of ' green ' (lat. ' Viridem ') + ' copper ' (lat. Spoken ' ar? Men ').
