English variation of Italia, Italian place name

Italy Origin and Meaning

The name Italy is a girl's name .

Why has it taken so long for us to discover Italy? The name, that is.

For decades, we have been using Italian place names (and those adjacent) like Rome, Roman, Milan, Milana, Capri, Florence, and Verona, but Italy itself has only been given as a name since the 1990s. This current moment feels like it could be Italy's time to shine. It conjures up images of the beautiful country, and would be an inventive way to connect a daughter to her Italian heritage.

Italia is less common but equally evocative.
