The boot-shaped Italy is one European country that most Americans have no problem identifying, and many of us credit Italians for giving us fast cars, chic fashions, and delicious foods like pizza, pasta, and gelato. We should also acknowledge the many baby names we’ve adopted from Italy!
There are so many Italian-origin names on our popular baby names list. Gabriella, an Italian take of the Hebrew Gabriel, is tops and refers to the angel Gabriel in the Bible. Annabelle, meaning ‘gracefully,’ and Gemma, taken from the Italian for ‘precious stone,’ are also popular.
Take a look at this list if you’re looking for an Italian name for your baby girl. You can also see the most popular baby girl names across all cultures with our frequently updated list of the year’s top 100 girls names. Happy name hunting!
