For our daughter's middle name we're using my mother-in-law's name, Angela. We aren't into double a endings but it seems like it is impossible to avoid. Can you think of any Italian names that flow extremely well with Angela?!

    Italian names that don't end in -a:

    Beatrice
    Berenice
    Celeste
    Clio
    Dafne
    Luce
    Noemi
    Rachele
    Zoe

    Otherwise, i think it's possible to find something that flows with Angela, especially if you avoid names that end in -la.

    Fia Angela
    Nadia Angela
    Giovanna Angela
    Clara Angela
    Camilla Angela
    Aurelia Angela

    Have you thought of using a variation of Angela? Angeline or Angelique would go well with many of those Italian names.
