Italian Baby Names

Italian Baby Names
According to the U.S. Census Bureau's 2006 American Community Survey, almost 18 million people in the U.S. have Italian roots. If you're one of these people -- or if you just have an affinity for all things Italian -- you may be interested in an Italian name for your baby.

Perhaps the best place to start is Italy itself. According to the Italian National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT), the top 30 male and female names in Italy in 2004 were:

1. Francesco and Giulia
2. Alessandro and Martina
3. Andrea and Chiara
4. Matteo and Sara
