…that aren't ridiculous…we're fairly sure we're going down the Italian route (DH half Italian) but I'm looking to widen the scope a bit grin I have Austin & Phoenix…both vetoed. Mumsnetters?

Cairo! There was a boy at my school with the name and i just thought the sound of it was lovely.
Phileas is also great (from the novel around the world in 80 days)

Cosmo always makes me think 'cosmopolitan', worldly and well-travelled (bit of a stretch, perhaps).

I once met a 5yr old (non Spanish) Santiago, thought that sounded lovely.

Luca's one of my favourite boys' names; would (double 'c') Lucca, after the beautiful Tuscan city, work?

Travel-inspired names aside, though, you're spoilt for choice with so many gorgeous Italian boys' names! Alessio, Domenico, Salvatore, Lorenzo, Paolo... <sighs, longingly>

Um, what about Lucca? It's a nice enough name and it's also a lovely city in Italy. Or, if you're feeling more adventurous, Otranto or Palermo? grin
