A variety of distinguished and notable names have emerged from the beautiful and historical Italian region of Tuscany, including the notable surname Baciocchi. During the Middle Ages, as populations grew and travel between regions became more frequent, the people of Tuscany, who were originally known only by a single name, found it necessary to adopt a second name to identify themselves and their families. This process of adopting fixed hereditary surnames in Italy began in the 10th and 11th centuries, but it was not completed until the modern era. The surname Baciocchi came from the personal name "Baccio."

Baciocchi Early Origins



The surname Baciocchi was first found in the city of Arezzo in the 11th century, where members of the Bacci family were respected as nobility in Arezzo, Pesaro, and San Marino.
