Google dit names.com You will find many sites explaining and listing them as well as etymology.
I have been looking for Roscoes, Roscos, Rassicots etc. I have a great deal of info to share with you.
Rah-see-co (long o)but pronounced Rahs'co (i is elided) and that's where your spelling comes from. Leveille is pronounced lay-vay-yay americanized to levelee in my hometown
I am from Western MA. My g-grandmother was Hermenie Racicot m. Edouard Vincelette who settled in Turners Falls, MA. 1862. She had Roscoe relatives in Greenfield three miles away.
Hope this helps
Richard
