    Azzurra

    A friend is asking on nn options for this name...but not sure what to suggest for her.

    Do any of you know if this is a common Italian name, and if so, what are the common nns are?

    Thanks!

    I have friends with a cat named Azzuro - they call him Azzy.

    I guess it depends upon their taste in nns... I can see Azzie, Azza, Zuri, Zura, Zazie.

    The English spelling is Azura, fwiw.

    Azzurra/Azzurro look more like Italian surnames than first names to me. I've seen Azura (English) and Azure (French) as first names. I think Zuri would make a spunky nn choice.
    All the best,
