    Ornella

    This Italian name is not even on Nameberry, but I totally think it deserves a place!

    Citing from Behind the name: Created by the Italian author Gabriele d'Annunzio for his novel 'La Figlia di Jorio' (1904). It is derived from Tuscan Italian ornello meaning "flowering ash tree".

    I've never heard of it before and it's not really my style but I think it's wearable and fits well in with the other -Ella -ending names like Gabriella. I wouldn't give it to my future children but to someone's kid it can be a beautiful first name or a middle. I think it's an beautiful name but just not really my style.

    There is an Italian actress named Ornella Muti. That's the only Ornella I've heard of. Nicknames could be Ori, Ora, Nell, Nelly, Nella.
