Italian Names for Boys

Italian names for boys.jpg?ixlib=rails 3.0

Italian names for boys are becoming increasingly popular among American parents of all ethnicities, in part because many of them feature the oh-so-trendy final letter “O.” This has contributed to rise of such names as Matteo and Emiliano.

However, some Italian boys names, like Graziano or Terenciano, might sound a little over-dramatic or be difficult to pronounce for Americans.

Along with Matteo and Emiliano, other Italian boys’ names in the US Top 1000 include Aldo Dante, Enzo, Luca, Maximo, Rocco, Romeo, and Santino.

Baby boy names popular in Italy include Francesco – currently ranking Number 1 – Alessandro, Leonardo, and Giuseppe.
