Baby Name Needed – Italian Name for Baby Girl #3

A reader named Tina is looking for an Italian name for her third baby girl. Her first two daughters are named Francesca and Caterina.

Here are some of the ideas I had for baby #3:

Alessandra
Angelica
Antonia
Arianna
Aurora
Domenica
Elisabetta
Eugenia
Fabiana
Gabriella
Giacinta
Giovanna
Giulia
Liliana
Luciana
Marcella
Margherita
Marianna
Raffaella
Rosalia
Sebastiana
Stefania
Teodora
Teresa
Valeria
Vincenza
Vittoria

I focused on names with 3 or more syllables that don’t end with -ina. (Both Caterina and Tina have that element in their names, so I thought it would be nice to explore other options.)

Do you like any of the above? What other names would you suggest?

Update: The baby has arrived! Scroll down to find out what name Tina chose…
