Italian boys names


My DS is called Luca and I chose it because he has an italian surname. I love Luca because it doesn't sound too Italian like giuseppe, luigi. Are there any other italian boys names that don't sound cheesy. Most of them seem to end in O

Cxxx

Yes, most Italian boy names end in 'o'. How about Daniele, Dante or Michele?

That's a tough one! My friends hubby is Italian and named Salvatore. Sal for short. He really suits it.
Torre is nice.
Of the "O" ones I really like Sergio.
Vincent is nice too.

You could always do an o one and use a nickname. For instance, I know someone who named their son gaettano (sp.?) and they call him Guy for short.

Here are some names I wrote down when searching for Italian boy names: Giorgio, Dante, Carlo, Arlo, Angelo, Antonio, Enzo, Franco, Leo, Lorenzo, Martino, Santino, Giovanni, Gianni, Carmine.

Most of these end in -o, sorry!!

So many of them end in "o" because in Italian, as a rule, masculine words end in "o" (plural "i") and feminine words end with "a" (plural "e") but that doesn't really help.

I've had difficulty thinking of ones that don't end with an O but how about:
Federico (you could nn him Feddie/Freddie)
Leonardo (you could nn him Leo)
Nico

Thanks for replies!

I don't mind Leo but I think my SiL wants that name it was mentioned a year or so ago. I don't like it enough to fight over it. I may try and think of a french name instead he has french blood too

Stefan is a nice french boys name. And if your hubby is stuck on the Italian he can call him Stefano for a nickname.

How about Riccardo? My husband's name and our future son's name. there's an accent on the "cc" so it sounds different in Italian. People call him Ricky for short...

Good Luck on baby names!
