What are your thoughts on the name Italia for a girl? Many thanks

DartmoorDoughnut Tue 14-Feb-17 21:56:55

No

I supposed people use India so....

Doesn't work for me. Wouldn't name my child after a country though.

It's a bit 'Restaurant chain' or football team. Do you have any connection to Italy? There are so many nice Italian names to choose from.

Don't do it

I have to be honest, but it made me snigger, sorry (hope Its not your choice and you aren't totally offended sad

If it's the general sound that appeals, how about Thalia? I'd mishear Italia as that, I think.

It's a friend of mine who's considering the name. No connection to Italy. I've heard it only once as a name for a girl and thought it was odd, so said I'd ask here for the general consensus.

akwgreen Tue 14-Feb-17 22:03:46

Sorry, I should have put that in the OP really.

KoalaDownUnder Tue 14-Feb-17 22:03:59

Um, definitely not.

Loyly Tue 14-Feb-17 22:04:42

I think it's an awful idea.

BifsWif Tue 14-Feb-17 22:06:19

Nope. I instantly thought of Bella Italia, and with so many of them around I'm sure lots of other people will too.

Gallavich Tue 14-Feb-17 22:08:21

Not at all

Ilovecaindingle Tue 14-Feb-17 22:10:14

Natalia at best.

13 babies named Italia in 2015 (19 in 2013). That is a surprise!

That's the name of the wine i was drinking this evening.

Jooni Tue 14-Feb-17 22:17:34

It's not terrible or totally out there, but it's a strange choice especially with no link to the country. Talia or Natalia much better IMO.

Dreadful name

Pemba Tue 14-Feb-17 22:26:32

Reminds me of an airline. It's funny though, because Frances and Francesca are considered perfectly acceptable, also India and Erin.

PinkShampagney Tue 14-Feb-17 22:59:34

Honestly I don't like it.
It's a bit too corporate branding rather than real name.

It's very Italia pizza; Discover Italia; Sky Italia; Telecom Italia.

Just no.

Don't do that to another human person.

Rioja123 Tue 14-Feb-17 23:02:10

No.

girlandboy Tue 14-Feb-17 23:03:53

It's an airline

redfairy Tue 14-Feb-17 23:05:33

First thought...pizza.
Sorry!

Lilacpink40 Tue 14-Feb-17 23:06:28

Bella Italia...no!
