Boys name with a Mediterranean feel?

DH and I have an Italian surname although MIL is British and DH was born in the UK.

Nevertheless we want to choose a boys name that sounds right with our surname, but doesn't feel out of place in UK.

DDs name is Carmen and we are looking for something with a similar feel for our DS due in a few months.

Any ideas would be gratefully received as we are
really stumped.

Fabio.

Dante is the name of a devillishly handsome hedge fund manager with no morals. I like it all the same.

Alessandro
Valentino (these 2 are DSs names smile)
Francisco
Rafael (these 2 would have been DD2s had she been a boy)

DH is half Spanish half Italian and we have a "difficult" surname
