    Italian Boys

    My husband and I are currently trying to conceive our first baby. My husband is of Italian background and we're considering using Italian names for our children, but I really need to expand my list! Some Italian boys names I really love are:

    Aurelio
    Luca
    Marcello
    Marco
    Matteo

    Can you help me add to my list? What are your favourite Italian boys names? Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

    @mkmlvr - I really like Leo, Leonardo and Nico, as well as your suggestion of Leo as a nickname for Aurelio, which I hadn't thought of before! I rather like Angelo, but it's out because it's my husband's cousin's name. My husband's middle name is Salvatore, which I really dislike!

    @ottilie - I'm loving Alessandro, Orlando and Valentino. Interesting you suggested both Umberto, Gianluca and Andrea. We have a good friend named Umberto whose baby son is Gianluca Andrea!

    Honestly, there's only a handful of Italian names I like enough to name my child, so I don't know if we'll end up going down that path. That said, I know Marco is one of my husband's favourites, so we'll see!

    I have no extent of knowledge that ottilie and mkmlvr do, but I've always adored the name Amedeo, and it's been my favorite boys' name since I could remember. I also love Galileo (nn Leo, as in the European Léo). mrkmlvr already mentioned Leonardo, another one of my favorites, and Nico.
