From the historical and enchanting Italian region of Tuscany emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Corsello 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 Corsello is a name for a person who habitually wished everyone a good day, or who was a cheerful and happy person. The surname Corsi was originally derived from the Italian medieval given name Bonoaccorso, and is rendered in early documents in the Latin form of the name Accirsus.

Corsello Early Origins



The surname Corsello was first found in the town of Poggibonsi, which lies south of Florence. Research shows that at this time, Neri Corsini was a successful merchant in the town.

Corsello Spelling Variations



Italian surnames come in far more variations than the names of most other nationalities. Regional traditions and dialects are a decisive factor in this characteristi c. For example, northern names tend to end in "o", while southern in "i". Also important, but not unique to Italy, was the fact that before dictionaries and the printing press most scribes simply spelled words according to their sounds. The predictable result was an enormous number of spelling variations. The recorded spellings of Corsello include Corsi, Corso, Del Corso, Corselli, Corsello, Corsellini, Corsetti, Corsetto and many more.
