Etymological origin of Italian surname: Corvetti


Corvette, very very rare, would seem to be specific to Bolzano, Corvetti, slightly less rare, has a small stock in the Brescia area of Bedizzole and Pescina nell'aquilano, Corvetto has a very small stock in southern Sardinia at Portoscuso in Cagliari and Cagliari Sinnai in Cagliari, and a more significant strain in Brindisi, the origin of these surnames may in some cases derive from the Italianization of the Slavic term hrvat (Croatian), indicating an origin of the progenitor from that Balkan region, in other cases it derives instead from a hypocoristic form of the medieval name Corvo, derived from the Latin cognomen Corvus (see CORVI).
