Il Bambino Nomina

My dearest darling (Jared) has some Italian blood in him. He actually has more German than Italian, and also Scandinavian and a hodge podge of other mingled bloodlines. I have mostly Swedish in my blood. But Italian has the coolest names. So we are pretending to care about naming for heritage, and have decided to choose an Italian name for this little bambino.

Here's where you come in. We are scanning lists of Italian names, but have noticed that every list has different names on them, and no list is ever complete. So if you have any Italian favorites (male or female), send 'em on over. You may just have a hand in naming our fourth-born child (not quite the same ring to as first-born, but take what you can get.)

Had Italian clients that named their baby Nico, short for Nicolo.
Is Gabriella Italian? Nope, wait-I'm still waking up--It's Hispanic. Ha, I crack myself up.
