    Very old Italian names (girls)

    Taken from old census records that I had used to post in my blog. (This list is basically copied and pasted from my blog, actually). I thought some of you might find them interesting, or might need some inspiration. Any that really stick out to you? I was kind of surprised to find a female Paxe.

    Most are from the 12th-16th century.

    There's some beautiful names on there. I especially like Corelia, Madolina, and Genevria. My grandma's name in Carmelina. It's another beautiful old Italian name. Thanks so much for sharing these.

    Great names! I love Micola, Adalasia, Aulina, Belaflore, Luliana, and Savia. Plenty of these names would look right at home in the 'modern' world too.

    My faves are Fiammetta (I think this is the Italian spelling - they like a double dose of consonants in their names), Donata, Penina, Corinna, Dulce, Leandra, Livia (nice alternative to the popular Olivia), Isotta, Marsilia, Gaia and Nera (even if it's the feminine version of the madman Emperor Nero). Thanks for sharing, Flick!
    All the best,
    Mischa.
