Etzi is specific of southern Sardinia, of Guasila, Cagliari, Maracalagonis, Selargius, Quartu Sant'Elena, Sinnai, Teulada, Barrali and Sarroch in Cagliari, of Carbonia, Santadi, Iglesias nell'iglesiente and Serramanna in the Middle Campidano, could derive from alterations of the toponym Setzu in the Cagliari area, but it is also possible that this is an alteration of the surname Atzei (cf). (see also ETZO) additions provided by Giuseppe Concas ETZI; ETZO: uncertain etymology and meaning. In Sardinian there is the entry étsi, étzi, sétzi, sétsi, fétti, scètti, séttugi with the meaning of sennonbe, unless, except that, except, that is, as a subordinate conjunction with a value for the most exceptions. It undoubtedly derives from the Latin exceptis. In Latin there is also the entry setius for secus> aliter = otherwise. A surname with this meaning naturally leaves many doubts. It could derive from su etzu, s'etzu (su betzu) = the old, from the Latin vetus = old. Setzu, whose etymology, according to many linguists, derives from betzu (su betzu = the old, from the Latin vetus)
