Need name for boy #3!!
The first two seemed easy but now we're struggling to find a third boy name we love. So far we have our boys 6yo Benicio (nn Benny) and 1yo Emilio (nn Leo). We're completely open to suggestions for first name but mn will definitely be Philippe. Our "like not love" list right now is:
Mauricio (nn Reese??)
Luciano (nn Luc)
Cristiano (reeeally not a fan of nn Cris)
I feel like I've seen every name ever invented - twice! Any suggestions or opinions welcome!!! TIA!!
Do you have any criteria at all? Initials to avoid? Sounds you don't like?
I see you have Luca on your list, but not others that end in 'o' - are you leaning towards continuing your 'ending with o' pattern, or would you prefer to steer away from that?
FWIW, I really like Vincenzo (I'm guessing it's prn vin-chen-zo??) but Vinnie might be a bit much with Benny, could be nn Enzo?
Other 'ending in o' suggestions off the top of my head:
Thomasino nn Tommy
Antonio nn Tony or Ant
Federico nn Fed or Frederico nn Freddie
Matteo nn Matt, Matty (don't like so much) or Teo
Best of luck!
I love the name Vincenzo. With nn Vince or Vinny. Vincenzo Phillipe sounds great. I also love Matteo nn Matt. Matteo Phillipe.
Alexios (nn Alex or Xios)
Luca is one of my current favourites for a boy! So that one gets my vote!
Cristiano is a great name! Love it. Nn Cris isn't awesome, but I dunno. You could call him Cristo? No idea. Best of Luck!
Thanks so much for all the replies! Even those most of them were repeats that we've read/seen/considered before, it was nice to put them back on the table once more before we added or vetoed them. My husband is still set on Luca but agreed to add Cristiano (THANK YOU lizgingermitch for the suggestion of Cristo!), Luciano, Valerio and Giuliano back on! Our short list is getting longer but I feel better about it this time around. Baby "Squash" might actually have a name soon!
