ALEGHIERI Medieval Italian (Tuscan, Rare, Archaic)
It has a hard to trace meaning, but the research shows that the meaning might be "clurgyman's family" or "son of professers." People know this last name for the poet Dante Aligheri who wrote the Dievine Comedy.
COITO Medieval Italian (Tuscan, Latinized, ?)
That means a wedding or the nuptials.
