Italian Names for Girls
Italian names for girls almost invariably have several syllables and end in the letter "A," both fashionable in many countries today. This makes many Italian girls' names -- Mirabella, Serenella, Alessandra -- sound downright luxurious. In the US, the most popular Italian names for girls include Isabella, Mia, and Arianna. Female forms of classic Italian male names such as Gianna and Giovanna are also being used more widely. Italian names are a staple of opera houses around the world, because of their mellifluous sound and the large size of the Italian opera canon: Classic operatic heroines with Italian names include Bianca, Lucia, and Violetta. For all these reasons, Italian names for girls are known far beyond Rome and Milan. Browse our full list of Italian baby girl names here.
