Italy

According to Italy’s ISTAT (Istituto Nazionale di Statistica), the most popular baby names in the country in 2020 were Sofia and Leonardo.

Here are Italy’s top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2020:

Girl Names

  2. Giulia, 5,012
  3. Aurora, 4,987
  4. Ginevra, 3,657
  5. Alice, 3,333
  6. Beatrice, 3,162
  7. Emma, 3,069
  8. Giorgia, 2,701
  9. Vittoria, 2,677
  10. Matilde, 2,545

Boy Names

  1. Leonardo, 8,604 baby boys (4.15%)

  9. Riccardo, 4,025
  10. Edoardo, 3,785

In the girls’ top 10, Matilde replaced Greta (now in 16th place).

The boys’ top 10 includes the same names, but in a slightly different order.

Notably, Leonardo held an even more commanding lead in 2020 (4.15%) than in 2019 (3.64%). More than 1 in 25 baby boys were named Leonardo last year.

Also notable is the rise of Azzurra during the early 21st century. I didn’t realize until writing about a Scots-Italian baby named Azzurra last year that this name could be a reference to Italy’s national soccer team, known as gli Azzurri (“the Blues”) because the players wear Savoy azure. The baby name Azzurra entered Italy’s top 50 in 2017 and was ranked 27th for girls last year.

(One girl name with top-10 potential is the intriguing Ludovica, which — unlike cousins Luisa, Louisa, and Louise — has seen very little usage in the United States. Ludovica was Italy’s 30th most popular girl name — give or take a few spots — from 2008 to 2015, but in the last few years it has reached 15th twice.)

The boys’ top 10 includes the same 10 names, but in a slightly different order.
