I like it but i think its cuz I heard the little girls NN before her first name, I was in the supermarket and this lady was calling for her little girl saying, 'Tally, Tally' and then when the little girl didn't come she said 'Italy get your butt over here' and this little girl was absolutely stunning.

Well, I've heard of Paris, London, Brooklyn, Madison (using cities as names) so why not Rome or Venice as names? Italy is a new one, I never heard that as a child's name before. They must love their country!

I don't really like it - I think if I were Italian and wanted to show my patriotism in my kids name I'd go with Italia. You could still have the cute nickname tally from that.

I wouldn't use it. I don't think it is a very good name.

I don't really care for places as names but for people that do, I would at least hope it was somewhere you had visited at some point...Somewhere that seemed very special to you. I had a friend that was named India and she always had people ask her if she was born there!!

Maybe she just liked the way it sounded. I mean I named my daughter Sydney...and I in now way did that to make a reference to the city...I just liked the name. If you think about it...almost every name is a name of a city...doesn't mean you've been there...or you liked it.[/b]
The difference is Sydney is actually a legitimate name that just so happens to be a well known city. Thats fine. What I don't like is when people use the name of a very well known place, like Brooklyn, Paris, London etc, and name their child that. I just think it's a strange and tacky trend. If Italy as a country did have special meaning to the person, she could have given the child an Italian name. She could have given the child the name of a vinyard there she visited, or a small village, or something. As mentioned, even Italia would have been a little better (Tallia would have been great!) Italy just strikes me as wierd and uncreative if that was her reasoning.

Sydney is the name of a city though, and became considered a "legitiamte name" because it became very popular to use it as a child's name at some point. I agree with WVswthrt - people choose all sorts of unusual things to name their child, who knows the reasoning. I personally would not choose Italy. We are Italian, have been to Italy and love it, and in honor of our heritage chose an Italian name for our baby. I agree the more subtle approach is better. To each their own. I would never criticize another mom's choice. It's too personal of a decision. You wouldn't believe the reactions we get to our baby name choices!

At least her choice gave us something to talk about!!

SYDNEY variation of SIDNEY
Gender: Masculine & Feminine

Usage: English

Pronounced: SID-nee [key]

Either from a French place name which was a contraction of "Saint DENIS", or from an Old English surname which meant "wide island". A famous bearer of the surname was Sir Philip Sidney, an English poet and statesman of the 16th century.


Sorry, guess I'm just a name snob! A "legitimate" name to me is a name that has a long history and traceable origins, I don't think a name becomes "legitimate" by default just because it is used commonly (i.e. I don't consider "Brooklyn" to be a legitimate name, although it is commonly used) I guess I'm mean, b/c I do constructively criticize names, but only if someone asks my opinion
