The surname Accetto is derived from the Italian word "accetto," which means vinegar. Alternatively, the surname is of local origin and there is a place named Aceto located near Bari, in the region of Apulia.

The surname Aceto was first found in Sicily (Italian: Sicilia), the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The earliest record of this surname dates back to the first half of the 11th century, where a member of the Accetto family was a well known sculptor in Puglia, on the southern mainland of Italy.

Enormous variation in spelling and form characterizes those Italian names that originated in the medieval era. This is caused by two main factors: regional tradition, and inaccuracies in the recording process. Before the last few hundred years, scribes spelled names according to their sounds. Spelling variations were the unsurprising result. The variations of Aceto include Accetta, Accetti, Accetto, Accettulli, Accettullo, Accietti, Accietto, Accettanti, Aceto and many more.
