|I was really very tempted to make a list of the unusal names, but thought it would slow me down, in indexing. I could do that now, tho, since I am arbitrating and mostly just have to click. Maybe I will do that when the trento baptism project is done.|
With Wealthy, I just keep imagining the conversations when he was in school or courting a young lady.
|Chiara is so pretty. Its a name used in the trento area, too. Another name popular there (male) is Lodovico. I wouldnt name my child that..but I kinda like it. Baldassare is also very popular there..along with the normal italian names. One thing in this area is, there is no Vincenzo..it seems to be vicenzo..no N. There are a few names that pop up that have me thinking..that poor kid..lol|
|There seems to be a (strange) custom of changing Vincenzo to Jim when immigrating. Others have posted about this (Biff) and I can't find a good explanation for a link between the two names. A book at the library gave one but it did not make sense to me.|
