Italian surnames come in far more variations than the names of most other nationalities. Regional traditions and dialects are a decisive factor in this characteristic. For example, northern names tend to end in "o", while southern in "i". Also important, but not unique to Italy, was the fact that before dictionaries and the printing press most scribes simply spelled words according to their sounds. The predictable result was an enormous number of spelling variations. The recorded spellings of Cacciotti include Caccia, Cacciatore, Cacciatori, Caccini, Caccioni, Cacciali, Caccianti, Cacciarelli and many more.
First found in as early as the year 1152. It was in this year that Prete Caccia moved his family to Piacenza from the Lombardian city of Novara.
