We've decided on Francesca for our third child, we have 2 sons who also have Italian-ish names (we're not Italian, just love Italian names). We need suggestions for a middle name to go with Francesca.

I absolutely love Francesca Lucia (and am hoping hubby might cave for his lack of an alternative!), but he insists he doesn't like it, so we need other (preferably Italian) names to go with Francesca.

Also, what are your thoughts on using Lucia when our eldest is Luca (hubby's main objection). Granted, they're spelt similarly but in my opinion don;t sound too alike, and as a middle name I don't think it would cause a problem.

Your thoughts and suggestions on both would be most welcome

Lucia is lovely. Sounds nothing like Luca.




Definitely something ending in a.

I don't know if I would chose an Italian name for the middle as it is more likely to end in an A (female) and I think having 2 names ending in an A is a bit of a mouthful. ie Francesca Lucia is quite a lot to say.

What about a shorted simpler name to complement Francesca.
Francesca Rose
Francesca Chloe
Francesca Alice
Francesca May

Totally up to you (despite my name, I am not Italian), I would go for a simpler middle name.

I love Francesca Grace.
