I don't want anything too common but I loike the following:
Sergio, Emilio, Leo, Pavlo (also like Pablo but it's Spanish smile)
which do you like the best or do you have better ideas?

MammaMo, the names you have on your list are actually Italian. Would you prefer us to suggest some more of those? Sergio's cool. Good, old Roman name.

And if Greek, are you interested in modern Greek or ancient Greek?

Ioannis? Pronounced "Yannis" I think!

AgathaTrunchbull Sergio is also Greek, it was my Grandfathers name
thats partly why I have it on my list.
I have taken the S of the ending of all the names which is what makes it sound Italian smile

I love Pavlo!

Yannis means John so bit dull! If you want Greek influence I second looking at mythology. Also orthodox greeks celebrate saints days google that for inspiration. Maybe one has a story that you like or look at the due date to see which saint it represents or dates significant to you. I know it's the name of some dodgy R and B singer but I like 'Neo' meaning new. It's also written similarly in both languages which is unusual for greek names.

shoppingtrolley smile Thanks - Pavlo is high on the list at the mo and it's definitely the least common name on our list

Neo is also nice...sounds like Leo

HTH smile I think it would be really cute and there's always Picasso to have as a cool namesake. I know a man called Pablo and it works really well on him.

p.s. I realise it's Pav not Pab - but they are equivalent.
