Surnames: Ricciardi, Ricciardo, Ceraulello

My Grandfather's name was Costantino Virecci Ricciardi.
My Grandmother's name was Giovanna Ceraulello.
They were married in Piraino, Sicily in 1913.
On some documents his name was Ricciardo instead of Ricciardi. Does anyone have any knowledge of their parents, or a possible explanation of the name variance?
