Etymological origin of Italian surname: Bottos


Both from the Veneto area, Friuli, Bottos is from Caorle, Gruaro and Venice in the Venetian area and Treviso, and Azzano Decimo, Pasiano di Pordenone, Pordenone, Pravisdomini and San Vito al Tagliamento in the Pordenone area and Codroipo in the Udine area, Bottosso is of the Venetian, of Portogruaro, Santo Stino di Livenza, Ceggia, San Donà di Piave and Fossalta di Portogruaro, with a small stock in Pordenone, should derive from hypocoristic forms of the medieval Germanic name Boto, of which we have an example in a Carta venditionis of the 1152 in Magenta in the Milanese: ".. Ego Petrus, notarius sacred palaces, scripsi, post betrayed complevi et dedii. Ibi statim coram ipsis testes, in ipso die, ligno et carta que his tenebat manum, suprascripto Massio invistivit suprascripto Boto de loco Axiglane, nominative de suprascriptorum camporum et prato et sediment que leguntur suprascripta carta, sicut dicernitur in suprascriptas coerentias in such tenor ad tenendum et ad ficto redendum homnique year a rgentum denariorum bonorum solidos decem by omnem festum sancti Martini usque ad annos quatuor ... ", a name derived in turn from the Germanic term bod (messenger), could also derive from a nickname based on a dialectal variation of the Venetian word boto ( botta, shooting of hours, noise), unlikely, but not impossible, a connection with the Gothic term bauths (stupid, dull).
