In comparison with other European surnames, Italian surnames have a surprising number of forms. They reflect the regional variations and the many dialects of the Italian language, each with its own distinctive features. For example, in Northern Italy the typical Italian surname suffix is "i", whereas in Southern Italy it is "o". Additionally, spelling changes frequently occurred because medieval scribes and church officials often spelled names as they sounded rather than according to any specific spelling rules. The spelling variations in the name Bertola include Berti, Berto, Bert, Berta, De Berti, De Berto, Di Berto, Bertelli, Bertello, Bertella, Bertini, Bertino, Bertinetti, Bertinetto, Bertucci, Berteri, Bertieri, Bertera and many more.
First found in the city of Ferrara, where Giacomo Bertazzi was assistant to Pope Sergio II in 845.
