We have a Julia and a Luca. I'm looking for names for #3 as we are TTC. Last name is very Italian so I seem to love girl names ending in -a (DS was going to be Mila or Eliana, DH preferred Mila but then cousin named his DD Mila so that is off the table). Boys names I prefer very strong Italian names (like Antonio, Gianni, etc.). The thing is we have unspoken family rules that there are no duplicate first names... so a lot of Italian boy names are out. Finding one that doesn't belong to a family member that we liked was a challenge. DH is also from Brasil so perhaps a Brasilian name would be a nice tip to his country of origin (he's full-blooded Italian, though). DD was going to be Caio (Ky-oh) but by the time we were expecting DS we no longer LOVED the name as much.
