Looking for an authentic Italian baby girl name? Look no more!

If you have read some of my other baby name posts, you already know that I am a Latina at heart.

In addition, my partner is from Central America. Once I found out I was pregnant with my son, I knew I had to give him a Latino name to grow up proud of his multiculturalism. Especially since we are raising him bilingually.

Still, even though I am Latina at heart, I am Italian in blood, and if one day I have a little girl, I absolutely want her to carry on the names of my bisnonna and nonna.

Today, I am going to make my ancestors proud by providing a list of authentic and unique ITALIAN BABY GIRL names.

I am in love with so many of these beautiful Italian baby girl names. With their unique spellings and roll-of-the-tongue sound, it just makes me want to produce lots of little bambinas!

With that said, I hope you enjoy this post. Let me know in the comments below if you love any of these names your little girl!
