I know a bloke called marcello and it just gets shortened to marc. Just depends on what he is happy being called once he gets a bit older, my name is Elizabeth and at various times I've been liz, libby, beth, and lizzy! Xxx

would say marcel for short (super name btw)

Lovely name smile. I can't imagine it being shortened to Marco especially if you discourage it, or start up your own shortened version wink.

Marc, Mar, or Mars, perhaps?

I know a Marcello who gets called Marc. Personally I prefer Romeo - more classic and more Italian sounding.

Marcello Raffeallo does not sound great, to be honest.

Romeo or Rocco Raffaello sounds much nicer imo.

Would Marcelino Raffaello sound better?

Romano?

Angelo?

Dino?

Gino?

I know an adult Marcello and his name gets shortened to Cello

Love Marcello, definitely the best of your options I think it would be shortened (if at all) to Marc or Cello.

Rocco and Romeo are celeb kids names so you may find they become popular for the wrong reasons.

Marcello is lovely. Can see it being shortened to Marc (or messed with in the playground and turned into marshmallow).

Romano sounds good with your DH's name.

I have just run these by my DS8 (who was on his way back to bed before I get flamed for him being up so late!!) his off the cuff NN's were Marcy for Marcello, Rocky for Rocco and Raffy for Raffaello. I won't tell you what he said for Romeo... blush
Thought that a child's point of view might help, especially as no matter how hard we try it is they that bugger up our lovely names in the playground - his name is German btw and it is constantly messed about with!

I personally love Raffaello. I used to work with a gang of utterly gorgeous Italian men (so with name association in mind!) how about Fabian, Giacomo or Francesco?

But the most teasable name for silly schoolchildren (William > Willy) is used so frequently these days... In other words there are much more teasable names than Marcello (Marshmallow) for example.

Why not Romano, as suggested by someone earlier in the thread? That's be my 2nd favourite, after Marcello.

I don't think Marcello Rafaello sounds wrong, so if that's the one you want, go for it.

I have an uncle with that name, he gets Mac or Max

When i was little I couldn't say his name and used to call him uncle Awello!grin

Marcello is never shortened into Marco, at least here in Italy.

I don't like Marcello and it will probably be shortened to Marc/Marco in the UK.

I think Romeo Raffallo sounds very cool smile.

I knew a Marcello who was known as Marshmallow. I think this is the most obvious nn kids would think of, and not Marco or any 'soft c' nns like Marcel, as the c has a 'ch' sound.

How about Rafaello as a first name? I think this is the best you've posted so far. I like all the combinations you posted with Rafaello as the first name.

Or Roman? (very 'international' name)
