Verrigni is definitely abruzzese, of Pineto and Roseto degli Abruzzi in the Teramano and Montesilvano and Pescara in the Pescarese, Verrigno, very very rare, would appear Palermitano, the origin of these surnames should be from a possessive derived from the Latin cognomen Verres, perhaps intending a derivation from a freedman of the famous propraetor Gaius Verre governor of Sicily, against which is unleashed the oratory of Cicero in a process for concussion, but, for the strain of Abruzzo can be assumed a derivation From the place names of Abruzzo of Verrico or Verrecchia or of Castelverrino in the Iserniese.
