From the historical and enchanting Italian region of Tuscany emerged a multitude of family names, including the name of the distinguished Piccolotti family. Surnames in this region, came into being during the Middle Ages: As populations grew and travel between regions became more frequent, the people of Tuscany began to find 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. The surname Piccolotti is derived from the Italian word "piccolo," which means "small;" and as such, it is generally considered to have been a nickname surname, that is, a name that was created from a physical or personal characteristic of a person. The most common type of family name found in Tuscany was the patronymic surname, a name created from the father's given name; however the nickname type of surname was not uncommon. Piccoli was a patronymic or plural form of Piccolo.

Piccolotti Early Origins



The surname Piccolotti was first found in Siena Province, Tuscany, where a family of this name was found from the 10th century, with the prestigious and powerful Piccolomini family, at the head of which was Piccolomo Piccolomini.
