  28. I love all the name ideas!! I have a more unique name and I love that. I do ALWAYS deal with people misspelling or mispronouncing it though! A small price to pay I guess :) Valentina is so beautiful and my favorite so far!

  30. If(I should say when because I really do want children but you never know what's round the corner) I have a child, I am going to name it Eve.I think it is just such an elegant and stylish name which is very grown up and beautiful.But, as a child you could call them Evie which is also very cute and great for a young child.

  45. I like the fact you have two italian-named children, I kind of hoped you'd have hopefully two more that could have irish names maybe? just to reflect both your heritages :) I love italian names myself but I know for a fact if i ever have a daughter i'd want to call her Emilia and I am definitely going to think of your Emilia and won't be able to do it haha!

  46. Serena, written with the E letter, is different than Sirena (that means mermaid). Serena comes from 'sereno' that means quiet, calm, serene. :)
    And the classical song you meant is Für Elise by Beethoven. I loved it when I was a child and was actually the reason why I started playing the piano ahah


    Love this video though!

    ReplyDelete
  47. We have very similar taste on names! Love love love Giulietta!!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love all those names! I think Theodore and Alexander would have to be my favourites. I'm really looking forward to finding out what you name the new baby - whatever you choose is going to be beautiful xx

  52. I really love the name Florence <3

  53. Hi Anna,
    I really like the names
    Evelyn for girl because i loved the shorten versions (Evie or Eve)
    and Leeroy-Elliot (because again i love the shortened version of Lee)
    Love you, bye

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi Anna, would be great if you could reply
    Ilove both these names because of there shorten versions/nickname choices

    Girl: Evelyn, its very pretty but also tomboyish. I like this versatility becuase you don't know the characteristics of your baby until they are older. (Nicknames: Eve, Evie, Elle, Ella)

    Boy: Leeroy (or Leeroy-Elliot), this name is just too cute and the nickname is even cuter (Nickname: Lee {the best one, according to me}, Roy

    Don't stop being amazing, also these are just my choices xxx

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love all of your name choices Anna, its so special how you have incorporated an italian theme too <3 I can't wait for the beautiful new addition to your family xx

  56. Giulietta was such a beautiful name! It would fit so perfect with Emilia and Eduardo as well. You are amazing Anna!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have a 6 month old baby daughter. Her name is Elisa and I am soooo happy we chose that name!
    People tell me everyday how beautiful her name is, and I think it too ;)
    The best of it is that you don't hear it too often and that makes it even more special.
    But the name you choose will be for sure just pretty!!!

  66. Giuletta sounds beautiful but I've never heard that name in the states. I love a few of the others too and I'm so excited to find out what you actually end up naming your baby.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hi! In Spanish Serena is the word for serene, and since it ends with an "a" it refers to a woman, girl, it's the feminine for serene. Sereno means serene but in the masculine form. It's very pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  72. My favourite girls name is Shawna ❤️❤️

    ReplyDelete
  73. Hi Anna, I have always really liked Beau for a boy and Elise for a girl. But now that I have heard of the girls name Shawna, which I just found out means Present or God is gracious; a gift from God I think it's ever so beautiful and precious! Can't wait to learn your next daughter's name :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  74. I absolutely love the names Valentina and Serena. It's a shame you aren't using them, but I'm sure whatever name you have picked for the little one will be just as adorable! ❤️ xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  75. I love names Amalia,Eliana,Emma,Aaliyah,Elina and Luna.. It would be amazing if your baby's name is one of them.. But I know you have already chose and I know it will fit well with your little girl :)

    ReplyDelete
  76. When I was pregnant and I found out it was a girl I really liked Emilia after your daugther (we watched the vlogs back then) but we live in Holland and that's difficult for most people here to pronounce. We made it into Emily (still English but better for Dutch people ;)) her full name is Emily Charlotte Victoria and I still love the look of the names when I write them done. We also liked Julia, Liv and Scarlett but they didn't feel right with our baby girl...

    ReplyDelete
  77. Beautiful names! For a girl, I love Zinnia, Lainey and Azalea. For a boy, I love Ronan, Seamus and Oisin.

    HERE IS MY THOUGHTS ON ALL THE NAMES:
    Giulietta is gorgeous! but i know what you mean by everyone getting it wrong :| i'm adding it to my list of 'future baby names for when i become a parent' haha. i already have Eliana which i really love, but like you said my mom is not too fond of it. For a boy i like Lucas, Jonathan, Francis (frank/frankie), and Eric. i actually got Lucas and Eliana from another youtube family - i get alot of inspiration from family channels; such as a wedding in Sorrento 😍
    I WAS ACTUALLY THINKING about the name Valentina this morning!! - really pretty as well. LOVE Italian names. Sophia is nice but i feel like it is used too often around me for some reason, as is David. Elisa is very unique. Have you ever considered Luciano if you ever have another boy? love that name.
