    Help naming Italian character?

    I need a name for my Italian character. She has black curly hair, dark brown eyes, and an olive complexion (Italian, basically). She comes from a wealthy, eccentric family that's very into the arts, especially music/opera. This character is very down-to-earth but a bit prim and not as eccentric as the rest of her family. I see her with a name that's unusual, elegant, and perhaps has a tie to Italian opera. Any ideas?

    ETA: Also, if anyone has any suggestions for Italian surnames, that would be great too.
    ♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Gideon ◊ James ◊ Quentin ◊ Solomon ◊ Jasper
    ♀ | Helen ◊ Cora ◊ Anne ◊ Jane ◊ Caroline ◊ Catherine ◊ Gwen ◊ Georgia ◊ Elizabeth ◊ Lydia
