From the historical and enchanting Italian region of Tuscany emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Barocio family. During the Middle Ages, as populations grew and travel between regions became more frequent, the people of Tuscany found it necessary to adopt a second name to identify themselves and their families. The process of adopting fixed hereditary surnames was not complete until the modern era, but the use of hereditary family names in Italy began in the 10th and 11th centuries. Italian hereditary surnames were developed according to fairly general principles and they were characterized by a profusion of derivatives coined from given names. Although the most common type of family name found in Tuscany is the patronymic surname, which is derived from the father's given name, the nickname type of surname is also frequently found. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The surname Barocio is a name for a courageous or brave person having derived from the Latin word "barus."

The surname Barocio was first found in the town of Baroncello, just outside the historic city of Florence. Earliest records tell of the family Baroncelli, who owned a castle in Baroncello, and moved to Florence in the 11th century. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.

Surnames that originated in Italy are characterized by an enormous number of spelling variations. Some of these are derived from regional traditions and dialects. Northern names, for instance, often end in "o", while southern names tend to end in "i". Other variations come from the fact the medieval scribes tended to spell according to the sound of words, rather than any particular set of rules. The recorded variations of Barocio include Barone, Baronio, Varone, Varoni, Varuni, Varone, Baroncelli, Baronchelli, Baroncini, Barelli, Barello, Barel, Barella, Barellini, Barettin, Baruzzi, Baret, Barettini, Barucci, Baruzzo, Barusso, Barocci, Baronti, Barontini, Baroni and many more.
