Just after some suggestions of girl & boy Italian sounding names to go with a short-anglo-surname.
My family is Italian and DH & I have agreed that we would like an Italian sounding first name for our children when we have them but, in saying that, the surname is a one-syllable anglo name so it has to sound okay with that too. We've found that most italian names sound awesome with it since they generally have several syllables but yeah, just after some suggestions:
...???? TELL ME YOUR IDEAS!!
Any good boy names? We're thinking it probably won't work for a boy's name as nicely as it does for a girl's name so we may not hold up on this italian name thing if it is a boy.

Matteo or Massimo are nice for boys. How about Allegra for a girl?

I like Sophia and Isabella and I also like Patrizia and Antonella.
Boys - I like Rocco and Adriano, but as you said, these may not go with your surname.

I have a Natalia, it means 'born at Christmas' or something like that in a few European languages. She arrived on the 22nd of December, so it was a very appropriate name for her

I am married to an Italian so of course our first born boy had to be named after his father (I know old tradition) anyway I flat out refused and DH wouldn't back down so we came to a comprise, he would be named after his father but his middle name had to be a J name and we would all call him A.J.
Anyway I have 2 boys and the first is Antonio Joel (A.J.) and so when we had the second boy it had to be Italian sounding to fit with out Italian last name so he is Dominic....I love and wanted Charlie but didn't get that
and I LOVE Luca but DH hates that to
If we were to have had a girl the only girl name I love and want and the only one we had on our list is Isabella and we would of nicknamed her Bella, but we have 2 wonderful boys instead......

Oh I like Leo too not sure why that was never on our boys list, oh well it will be on the list if we are ever blessed with # 3
