The new top Italian names!
The new Italian top 30 is out! You can find it here.
The top 30 makes up for 48% of the boys' names and 41% of the girls'.
I was pretty excited to find out the new rankings, probably more than a normal human being would consider reasonable
I think it's very interesting to note how many parents are starting to choose international names for their children: Rebecca, Nicole, Melissa, Christian, Gabriel.
I also have to note how the list seems to fit the Nameberry style: names which are rare in the States and are site favorites crop up on the list (Beatrice and Alice!)
My personal favorites:
Viola, Noemi, Greta, Ginevra, Giada, Arianna, Ludovica
Alessandro, Lorenzo, Riccardo, Luca, Edoardo
What do you think? Which names are your favorites? Which are outright weird, and you would never choose for your children?Michelle
