First found in the areas around Ali Superiore and Ali Terme, both places in Sicily. The name Ali originated from the names of these two places. Most likely, it was given to someone who had lived in one of those places, but then moved elsewhere, where he took the name to identify himself by his place of origin. Though the name is much more common in Sicily than elsewhere, it has spread to mainland Italy over the ages. Other spelling variations of Ali which end in "i" are mostly from the north, whereas those that end in "o" come from the south.
