Surname Tucci, Tuccio, Tucceri and variations

Etymology: Tucci is common all over Italy and should be a relatively modern variation of Tuccio, which is today rare.

In the 14th century in Montieri (GR) there was a bishop named Ser Tuccio, and in Florence one Giovanni di Tuccio degl'Infangati. Since at the time no surnames as such were in use, this Tuccio was probably a diminutive form of names anding in "-to" as Alberto, Roberto, Santo, Vito and others.
Reference: "domina Lecta, uxor olim Tucci de Infangatis, populi Sancte Cecilie, cum consensu" a lady giving receipt for a rental. The Infangati family was recorded among the noble families in Florence in the years 1293-95 in: G. Salvemini, Magnati e popolani in Firenze dal 1280 al 1295, Firenze 1899, 376a. Necr. I, 68, 393-402; II, 642b. SOPMÆ IV, 172-73.
