I grew up in VERONA,PA.. Pittsburgh has a large Italian community but Verona had quite a mix of people in the 1960's.

I knew two girls called Verona and Sienna, my mum said that she thought naming your kids after two Italian place names was ridiculous even though in Italy it is spelt Siena. I thought it was quite sweet and a good way to acknowledge Italian heritage.

Very pretty name, and I would say it's one of the best place-name options out there. Verona is more to-the-point than similar-sounding Veronica, retains the sassiness of that name while sounding softer and girlier. The city being the setting for Romeo and Juliet also lends the name lots of sophistication and romance.
