Tuscany emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Corsetti 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 Corsetti 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.
