Carter, almost unique, is Venetian, Cartera, also almost unique, it would seem Sicilian, Carteri has a stock at Valeggio sul Mincio in the Verona area on the border with Mantua and one in Brancaleone and Africo in the Reggio area, Cartero, which would seem quite unique, is of the Genoese, there are two possible hypotheses, the first is that the surnames derive from the late Roman name Carterius, of which we have an example in San Carterius, priest of Caesarea in Cappadocia, who was martyred under Diocletian, the second hypothesis is that instead the surnames can derive from the trade of paper maker carried out by the progenitor.
