    Italian twin names!!

    Hello! We are expecting twins! I am 15 weeks and we do not know the genders yet but we are over the moon excited! I will update once i find out the genders. This is my first pregnancy. My husband and I are both italian, both of our parents are fully italian! We would love to give our children italian names since we both have italian origin names. Our last name is D’Ambrosio, thankfully it’s not too complicated. We want names that have meaning too. We like names that sound clever together aka romeo and juliet, or names that have the same meaning, or names that have meanings that go together! Please share your ideas for all twin combos, two boys, two girls, one of each! We are all over the place with name ideas. We want to hear all your name ideas and suggestions! We would also love to hear some middle name ideas.
    Names we like:
    Romeo
    Giovanna
    Leonardo
    Lorenzo
    Luca
    Allegra-reminds us of the pill !
    Alessandra
    Isabella
    Vittorio
    Violetta

    Hi there.

    Here are my thoughts on your list:

    Romeo-I don't about this. It's kind of interesting, but it's just so tied to the tragic character that I'd be hesitant to use on a child.

    Giovanna-I want to like this, but just don't care for it for some reason.

    Leonardo-The nn Leo is adorable, but I don't love Leonardo as much. Just don't personally care for the 'ard' sound.

    Lorenzo-This has a much fresher sound, & you could still do the nn Leo. Or Louie or Enzo.

    Luca-Love this. Probably my favorite Italian name. It's masculine, yet kind, gentle & a little artsy.

    Allegra-LOL, this reminds me of the pill too unfortunately.

    Alessandra-This is not my favorite, but I'm not sure why.

    Isabella-This is a beautiful name, but way over done.

    Vittorio-Hm. I don't love this, but it's okay. I feel like it will just get mixed up as Victoria.

    Violetta-This is gorgeous.

    I like Luca & Isabella for twins, but being as Isabella is just so darn popular, Luca & Violetta are my favorites. Lorenzo is also nice.

    Other Italian names that I like:

    Boys-

    Bruno

    Dante

    Giovanni

    Gianni

    Giacomo

    Giuseppe

    Gustavo

    Luciano

    Massimo

    Mateo

    Maximiliano

    Nico

    Salvatore

    Girls-

    Antonia

    Bianca

    Camilla

    Cecilia

    Cornelia

    Delia

    Eloisa

    Francesca

    Giulia

    Giorgia

    Gemma

    Luciana

    Lucia

    Luisa

    Romeo and Violetta are my favourites!

    Romeo - I've heard that some people think the tragic character makes the name too heavy for a child to wear, but I still really love it. I find it soft and romantic, and the connotations don't bother me - I love the name Ophelia, and I'm pretty sure she drowned in mythology.

    Giovanna - I like Gianna, I think it's sweet, but Giovanna just more harsh and longer? I'm not saying I dislike it, I just prefer Gianna for a little girl, Giovanna feels like an older name to me.

    Leonardo - I like this name! I immediately think think of Da Vinci and Dicaprio. I love nn Leo, and Leonardo is a little outdated - but still handsome!

    Lorenzo - Lorenzo has a great flow and feel to it, and I LOVE the nickname Enzo! So adorable!

    Luca - Luca is definitely sweet and soft sounding, but I've found it to be fairly common and also similar to the common Luke.

    Allegra - Allegra doesn't do a lot for me, something about it sounds a little too harsh. Allie would be a cute nickname though.

    Alessandra - I used to love this name, I think it's beautiful and elegant. Alex is a cute, spunky nickname.

    Isabella - Honestly, I feel like Isabella/Isabelle has just been done too many times... I know it's a stunning name, but I personally can't get past that.

    Vittorio - This is different! Definitely strong and unique. It isn't my favourite, but I'd never seen it before, so maybe it will grow on me.

    Violetta - This is lovely. I love the name Violet, I find it spunky and cool - and you can still use Letty/Vi as a nickname. Violetta has a more feminine, princessy vibe - which is obviously what you prefer, and I'm all for it!

    Hey there! Here are some suggestions. I tend to prefer more streamlined italian names, they seem more modern IMO.

    Chiara & Nico - both are short and not overly romantic, while still being very italian

    Clara & Cecilia

    Nicolas & Teodoro

    Bianca & Chiara

    Giulia & Alessandra

    Giulia & Filippo

    Cecilia & Violetta

    Giulia & Chiara

    Elena & Cecilia

    Leo & Nico

    Luca & Nico

    Elisa & Giulia

    Bianca & Enzo

    Lavinia & Violetta

    Cecilia & Marina

    Marina & Filippo

    Best of luck!

    A few ideas for twin girls:

    I LOVE Cara & Mia, for the "cara mia" meaning. They're a little simpler than a lot of the names on your list, but I wonder if the meaning makes them more appealing for you?

    I think Angelica and Annunziata would be cute, but could possibly read very religious, so I don't know if that would be right for you.

    Chiara and Lucia also go together well, and they mean "bright" and "light," respectively.

    PS I too am sad that the pharmaceutical industry has made gorgeous Allegra borderline unusable.
