Bub#2 is due to arrive in this world sooooooon and we have no names picked out.
As we're only having one name, no middle names, I'd like a flexible Italian 3-syllable name. One that can be shortened to a 2-syllable English name and/or shortened further to an "aussie" name, for example: Ri-car-do, can become Rich-ard, which can become Rick... but unfortunately also D*ck which was OK in my grandfather's day but not now. It's even automatically blanked out here on bubhub as a rude word if I write it out in full, eg: ****, but that was my grandfather's name!!
And following the Italian tradition, boys names end in 'O' and girls names end in 'A'.

I'm not sure if my favourite Italian girls name has an English abbreviation, but it's Chiara (kee-ah-ra). Similarly for a boy, Angelo.
