Pallikari means "brave man", and it does look close to Pellicore. Considering the large number of Greek words in the dialects of Southern Italy (ancient Magna Graecia) it has to be a candidate.
I was thinking it might be a dialect word related to peliccia, "fur", or pelle, "skin". - perhaps a dialect word for an animal-skinner.
