Italian Christian Names
Firstnames are often referred to as Christian name. Italian names share similar first or Christian names, with other Christian countries. These 'shared' titles differ from country to country according to the language and the spellings and pronunciations of Christian names therefore also vary. The church encouraged the use of naming Italian babies after biblical characters from the New Testament and Saint's. Old Testament ones were not commonly used by Christians until the 18th century. The language of origin for a Christian name was therefore Latin, Hebrew or Greek.
