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 Caso include Casa, Case, Dalla Casa, Dallacasa, Della Casa, Da Ca, Dacca, Da Cha, Dacha, Dalla Ca, Dallaca, Dalla Cha, Dallacha, Casella, Casello, Caselli, Casèl, Casiello, Casillo, Casetta, Casati, Casselli, Casetti, Casèt, Casina, Casine, Casino, Casini, Casola, Casolla, Casol, Casotti, Casone, Casoni, Cason, Casacchia, Casaccia, Casacci, Casassa, Casazza, Casabianca, Casablanca, Cabianca, Casabassa, Cabassa, Casabella, Cabella, Casabona, Cabona, Caboni, Casagrande, Casagrandi, Casamassima, Casanova, Canova, Casavecchia and many more.

First found in the culturally rich region of Lombardy, where earliest records date back to the year 1126 in Milan, when Apollonio Casati was Imperial Vicar for Lotario il Sassone.
