Italian cultures are portrayed in the media quite a lot with popular culture icons such as Sophia Loren and Donatella Versace, but many female Italian names remain unknown and are not considered when searching for popular baby names. If you’re one of those dads or moms looking for an original name for your child then how about considering one of these?
Tips For Choosing Your Baby Girls Name
Before I share with you my list of top Italian girl names here are a few tips for choosing the right name for your baby girl.
– Consider your family heritage and culture. It’s a great way to pay homage to both you and your child’s background (and hopefully an interesting topic of conversation for them when they’re older).
– Don’t let current trends decide, remember you are naming your child for their lives not just the year they were born!
– Avoid names that are too common and stick with one that is memorable. You want people to say “oh what a beautiful name” not “really?”
– Make sure it fits with your surname. No matter how gorgeous you may think carmen solis sounds if it doesn’t fit with the rest of your last name then change it!
