    I like Daggett Andrews (though part of me is reminded of the cartoony swear 'dagnabit')

    Levi Fisher seems like a Jewish watchmaker in Brooklyn.

    The DiAngelo family, with the exception of Lennon, seems too stereotypical. If your DiAngelos speak English, then they won't all have Italian names. I would preserve Dante and change Francesca and Eduardo [which strikes me as more Spanish than Italian anyway].

    Thanks a lot! They actually don'y speak English, they're Italian, and Lennon is a cousin born in America. I thought of "Edoardo", but it sounded kind of weird. I'll look for a better one. Any suggestions?

    What kind of people are they supposed to be? How old?

    In general, older people in Italy have core-classic saint's names. Think Maria and Giovanni.

    Names from the South of Italy will strike many here as old-fashioned (like Vitale, Salvatore, Nunzio). Names from the north of Italy are seen as cool, sophisticated and glossy (like Giancarlo, Bianca, Enzo).

    here are the top 20 names for ALL of Italy (all ages, all regions):

    Feminine Masculine
    1 Maria Giuseppe
    2 Anna Giovanni
    3 Giuseppina Antonio
    4 Rosa Mario
    5 Angela Luigi
    6 Giovanna Francesco
    7 Teresa Angelo
    8 Lucia Vincenzo
    9 Carmela Pietro
    10 Caterina Salvatore
    11 Francesca Carlo
    12 Anna Maria Franco
    13 Antonietta Domenico
    14 Carla Bruno
    15 Elena Paolo
    16 Concetta Michele
    17 Rita Giorgio
    18 Margherita Aldo
    19 Franca Sergio
    20 Paola Luciano
