Although the most traditional type of family name found in the region of the Papal States 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 Grazioli came from the personal name Grazia. The name is originally Latin from the name Gratius. The name Gratius was originally derived from the word gratus, which means dear, beloved.
