    So I just rang duh and asked him for some Italian baby girl names. Since I'm not pregnant and we aren't TTC he was very unhelpful.

    Anyone have any suggestions for future baby names of Italian/Latin descent? We have an Ilaria alreadyso that's off the list.

    Obviously this is a fairly pointless thread but I need some ideas for my future daughters name (have my sons names worked out lol).

    Thanks in advance for your insights on this very important topic.

    For some reason I thought of julietta lol my second thought is Gia I guess they are the only ones I know. What about naming after an Italian town or landmark or something Italian related?

    I'm Italian and my kids all have Italian names do I hope I can help. below are some of the more popular Italian girl names. Nearly all Italian traditional Italian names end in a vowel and are directly from a place of catholic figure. Your first name can tell someone either
    1/ what day /saint day you were born or
    2/ what your grandparents names are
    3/ which Italian town you are from as each town has a set of names they generally use. Hope it helps!

    Ava, Maria, rosa, assunta, Lucia, Giulia, giuliana, Giovanna, ilaria, Serena, Antonia, Ana, Carmela, Isabella, Valeria ,imacolata, Valentina, Sofia, adriana, Allegra, Alessia, Alessandra, milania, chiara, Gia, lauretta, carina, marina, bianca, caterina, daniela, Stella, fiore, Franca, Francesca, Gabriella, Gisella, giulietta, Lorenza, margherita, Luciana, michela, nicola, Nicoletta, Paola, rachela, raffaella, silvania,

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone.
    Gggmama there are lots there so thank you! Unfortunately a lot of the ones I like are taken already eg sister, Neice, cousins. Oh and my daughter is Ilaria (love that name).

    Blissed Out, my cousin in Italy is Valentina, which I love but I don't think I could use. when we were in Italy her and her fiancé were asking us to write down English names lol my sister was giving them some bogan spellings though hehe
