Baby girl name help! (Italian?)

Hello!

We just found out we are having a girl!

I’m stuck on what name to go with. [name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I can’t agree, of course. I love Italian baby girl names but I am open to unique names as well! Our last name is Cantu if this helps.

So far we like [name_f]Sienna[/name_f], [name_f]Olivia[/name_f], [name_f]Alana[/name_f], [name_f]Alaina[/name_f]., [name_f]Elliana[/name_f], [name_f]Briella[/name_f], [name_f]Chloe[/name_f], [name_f]Serena[/name_f] , Natalie.

Anything you can suggest or have good suggestions as to what middle names would pair with it please let me know. TIA! :sparkling_heart:

Sienna Chloe would be lovely

Olivia Ruby
Sienna Lily
Alana Pearl
Alaina Sophie
Elliana Phoebe
Briella Zoe
Chloe Renee
Serena Holly
Natalie Hannah

I’ll also suggest
Aria
Amaia
Gemma
Elena
Lucia
Carmen

I LOVE the name suggestions you have given me! Never really imagined pairing [name_f]Sienna[/name_f] and [name_f]Chloe[/name_f] together but it’s lovely :heart_eyes: also love [name_f]Alaina[/name_f] [name_f]Sophie[/name_f]! . Carmen is beautiful! thank you sooo much!

Here are some IMO underappreciated Italian names

Bianca
[name_f]Carla[/name_f]
[name_f]Gianna[/name_f]
[name_u]Antonia[/name_u]
[name_f]Gioia[/name_f]
[name_f]Elisa[/name_f]
[name_f]Vittoria[/name_f]
[name_f]Alessa[/name_f]

Sienna, [name_f]Serena[/name_f], and [name_f]Alaina[/name_f] are my favorites.

Other suggestions:
[name_f]Savannah[/name_f]
[name_f]Natalia[/name_f]
[name_f]Emilia[/name_f]

Italian names:
[name_f]Bria[/name_f]
[name_f]Chiara[/name_f] (kee-ahr-a)
[name_f]Gianna[/name_f]
[name_f]Alessandra[/name_f]
[name_f]Ariana[/name_f]
[name_f]Giuliana[/name_f]

I love your names but for some reason they don’t give me an Italian vibe at all (maybe Sienna a little?)

Gianna
Fiorella
Valentina
Antonella
Chiara
Francesca
Lucia
Giulia
Massima
Fiorenza - I know someone with this name and it’s so beautiful, she goes by Fio
Lorenza

Unless you’re trying to go for an international name vibe in which case your names would work perfectly fine

[name_f]Gianna[/name_f] and [name_f]Alessandra[/name_f] are my favorites!

Our daughter will have a cousin named [name_f]Alessandra[/name_f] though so it’s been taken :sob:

[name_f]Gianna[/name_f] is absolutely stunning at is at the TOP of my list. But, my mother in law goes by GiGi for grandma. Would this be too similar to [name_f]Gianna[/name_f]? I know the nickname gigi will come up for her I’m sure at school or down the road :woman_facepalming:t2:

Thank you everyone for taking the time and for name suggestions!! :sparkling_heart::sparkling_heart::sparkling_heart:

[name_f]My[/name_f] husband and I have narrowed down to

[name_f]Olivia[/name_f]
[name_f]Kalia[/name_f]
[name_f]Eliana[/name_f]
[name_f]Natalie[/name_f] / [name_f]Natalia[/name_f]
[name_f]Gianna[/name_f]
[name_f]Chloe[/name_f]
[name_f]Alaina[/name_f]
[name_f]Briella[/name_f]

What do you all think? Which pairs best with our last name, Cantu?

Also what middles would work best for these potential first names?

I really like: [name_f]Alana[/name_f], [name_f]Alaina[/name_f], [name_f]Elliana[/name_f], and [name_f]Serena[/name_f]

I’m Italian and apart from [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] and [name_f]Serena[/name_f] the other names aren’t Italian…

I recently came across the name [name_f]Alonza[/name_f] it sounds Italian to me. What do you think?

[name_f]Luciana[/name_f] and [name_f]Chiara[/name_f] (kee-are-uh) are popular right now :slight_smile:
