Verdi Spelling Variations

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 Verdi include Berardi, Berardo, Berardis, Beraldi, Beraldo, Beraudo, Verardi, Verardo, Veraldi, Veraldo, Veralli, Verallo, Velardi, Velardo, Vilardi, Vilardo, Berardelli, Berardini, Berardino, Berardinelli, Berardinetti, Berardocchi, Berarducci, Beraldini, Beraldin, Belardelli, Belardetti, Belardini, Belardinelli, Belardoni, Bellardino and many more.
