First there were the Medieval and Renaissance Shawms, later to become bassoons.  But depending on what 16th century European country you were in, there were plenty of different names.  Try matching up these names with the correct countries (bassoonresource.org. 29.2.2016):

Curtal/Curtail                       Germany

Basson/Fagot                        England

Dulcian/Fagott                     Spain

Fagotto                                   Italian
