I started a similar thread a few yrs ago but haven't been able to find it! Baby due in just over a week and we haven't decided on a name. We don't know the sex.

Help!!

I don't know dh's preferences yet, but I'm thinking along the lines of...

girls
Carlotta
Giovanna

The name's got to go with an Italian surname hence more foreign sounding names than normal I guess.
