Operatic Baby Names
You don’t have to be an opera buff to appreciate the rich variety of names found in the classic repertoire. It’s an especially appealing category because it contains such an interesting mix of languages: there are frilly French female names, unusual Italian mens’ names, as well as some usable German and Russian character names. These range from leads such as Aida and Tristan, to featured players to those with minor roles.

Oh, Opera Names are some of my very favorites! Aida, Bianca, Elsa, Florina, Leonora, Mimi, Musetta, Violette for the girls and Basilio, Boris, Claudio, Fiorello, Ramiro, Rocco, Sylvia, Tybalt & Valentin for boys. *swoon*!

Well, 26 / 37 girl’s names end in “A”, and 19 / 30 boy’s names end in “O’ if I’m not mistaken.
Do you think those are going to be trends this year?
To me a girl’s names ending in “A” are the most feminine, and boy’s names ending in “O” are the most masculine.
Are people bored with unisex girl’s names?
Are parents feeling that “N” ending boy’s names more vulnerable to becoming girls names in the future?

The most opera-related girls’ name I can think of is Aria. Not included here!

I really love Aida and Tosca. Musetta is also a family name!
