I’d like to thank reader Daniele, who not only alerted me that Italy’s rankings came out early this year, but also generously offered explanations for a few of the fastest-rising names: Sole, Soleil, and Sophie.

Sole (Italian for “sun”), which was rarely used in the early 2000s, started picking up steam in the mid-2010s. Last year, it jumped into the top 50 for the first time. Daniele said that Sole’s rise “has been fueled by a few celebrity baby names.”

Sophie and Soleil (French for “sun”) are linked to influencers/TV personalities Sophie Codegoni and Soleil Sorge. Both women participated in the 6th season (2021-2022) of Grande Fratello VIP, which is the celebrity version of Grande Fratello (Italy’s Big Brother).

Soleil Sorge had become famous a few years earlier when she appeared on the 21st season (2016-2017) of the dating reality TV show Uomini e Donne (translation: Men and Women). Her name debuted in the Italian data in 2017:

  • 2022: 474 baby girls named Soleil in Italy
  • 2021: 144 baby girls named Soleil in Italy
  • 2020: 98 baby girls named Soleil in Italy
  • 2019: 104 baby girls named Soleil in Italy
  • 2018: 78 baby girls named Soleil in Italy
  • 2017: 74 baby girls named Soleil in Italy [debut]
  • 2016: unlisted
  • 2015: unlisted

(Italy’s baby name data — just like the U.S. data — includes only names given to five or more babies per year.)

Thank you so much, Daniele! :)

Other names currently on the rise in Italy include:

  • Luna, Mariasole, Anastasia, Diana, Celeste (girl names)
  • Ludovico, Ethan, Noah, Liam, Achille, Dylan, Enea (boy names)

Finally, here are Italy’s 2021 rankings, if you’d like to compare last year to the year before.
