Brother for Francesca Rose?
I don't know I'm definitely having a boy, but I have a long list of girls names that I love. I just totally struggle with boys names.
Daughter is Francesca Rose. I am half Italian, but married to a Brit with a british surname, so not Italian surname. It doesn't have to be an Italian boys name but it would need to work quite well in Italian. The problem is I think it can sound quite pretentious, potentially (but that might be me over-thinking!).
I also have a ridiculously fussy OH!
Things I *think* I like so far include:
Quinn (not Italian at all!)
Lucas (although quite popular in the UK now)

Favourites from your list are Enzo, Alexander and Lucas. Although, only Enzo is Italian, which is fine if you're not dead set on carrying on the Italian theme. Here are some Italian suggestions that could have English nicknames:
~ Alexius (Alex)
~ Antonio (Ant, Tony)
~ Benjamino (Ben)
~ Gregorio (Greg)
~ Leonardo (Leo)
~ Matteo (Matt)
~ Maximo (Max)
~ Roberto (Rob)
Good luck!~ 21 year-old name lover ~

I love Lucas, even though it is very popular everywhere right now. I think the fact that it works in multiple languages is part of the appeal. Lucas with a British last name would probably cut down on the "pretentiousness" you say you hear when you have a very Italian name with the ln.
Luca is a very good alternative that is a little less popular.Mi corazón
