No probably the two surnames have nothing to do.
Saint Tammaro is a local Saint of CAMPANIA the region of NAPLES.
BELTRAME is a first name coming from old German (through the French

Bertrand). Saint Tammaro was a priest coming from AFRICA.
According to Emidio de FELICE (Dizionario Dei Nomi Italiani) the origin of the first name TAMMARO is

obscure.

However the ethimology you explain could be a possibility.

Two things are sure:
The surname Tammaro comes from an old first name (now rarely used)
The origin of Tammaro is not germanic like Beltramo or Bertrand.
