When it comes to choosing a name for their little one, many parents are drawn to Italian names, even those without any Italian roots! Whether it’s a girl or a boy, we’ve got some of the cutest names that will just melt your heart.
Here’s a look at the top 25 Italian names that are trending in the U.S. right now. We hope you are able to find a baby name that is absolutely perfecto for you and your family!
25. Andrea (ANN-dree-a) or (AHN-dree-a) or (ahn-DRAY-a)
Andrea is one of few gender neutral names on this list. While it’s traditionally a boys name, as the Italian origin meaning is “strong and manly,” Andrea is also considered to be a feminine spin on Andrew (another popular male name in several European cultures).
This name has never been overly popular, but it has remained in the Top 100 baby names consecutively since 1962. That was until it got booted out in 2013. Even though it lost its spot in the Top 100, Andrea still ranks relatively well at #142.
Another selling point with this name is that parents can have a little bit of fun with the pronunciation. It can be pronounced as ANN-dree-a, AHN-dree-a, or even ahn-DRAY-a.
