our last name is Calabria, which is a province of Italy, and my husband is Italian.

We've pretty much decided on Ava Lucile for a girl (Lucile is my middle name) FOR NOW anyway
but I also like Ella, Grace, Charlotte and Avery for FN

and the middle name Joseph for a boy (DH's middle name, as well as his father, brother, and grandfather) but we can't think of anything Italian that's not so "ma-ma-miiii-ah" [ie, no Giovanni, etc]. We don't want him to sound like a character on the Sopranos. And its not an aboslute MUST that it be Italian, but some idea would be great.

Some ideas were [not all italian sounding]
Anthony (I think its too common though)
Dominic
Weston
Jace
Noah
Cassius

HELP! the baby name books are just too daunting. am I really gonna go through 300 pages of names??

Maybe it's too Italian but my fave Italian name is Lorenzo, nn Enzo.

My DD has a new Italian boy in her preschool class named Geno. I don't know if it's a nn for anything.

Carly listed my other faves: Luca, Matteo, and Vincent.

Vincent might be like Anthony....really popular among Italians.

Or, what about the Maximo?

(btw, I love Ava Lucille! )

Sebastian.

My son's name is Sebastian and I never thought of it as an Italian name but a lot of people do.
