We really want to combine my Italian heritage with my husbands Irish. We are having twin boys in July and we have no idea what to name them. How can you combine two different cultures and make the names flow together? Many Thanks.

Vincent Brian and
Luka Blaine sound nice.

The first names are Italian and the middle names Irish or Gaelic. I think these names are really great, please consider.

Irish First Names with Italian Middle Names:
Callum Vincente & Braonán Amato (the first names are pronounced "KAL um" & "bren an", respectively)
Caoimheán Aniello & Breandán Arturo (the first names are pronounced "keev een" & "BREN dan", respectively)
Or my favorites - Cian Giuseppe & Declan Ignazio (the first names are pronounced "KEEN" & "DECK lan", respectively)

I don't think you can beat what Scarlet has given you! Those names are excellent. My favorite pair is also the third. :]
I also like (forgive me, I don't know TRUE Irish names, just Anglicanized, but I know some Italian ones):
Alessandro Tiernan & Salvatore Cillian
Massimo Ronan & Arrigo Declan
Gianni Lochlan & Luciano Eamon

It's really nice isn't it? A great alternative to Finley/Finlay in my opinion. I tried to find names that don't have *very* tricky spellings, but you know how hard it is!

Well, my husband and I are using Italian first names for our kids. Right now I love Benito for a boy, but I'm sure it will change by the time I have a baby boy (if I ever do!).

Benito Ryan
Leo Casey
Gianni Casey

I kind of like Benito and Leo for twins. Sorry I can't be of much help here. Good luck!

I think it's going to be a lot easier on your child if they have italian first names and irish middle names, because outside of ireland, irish names get butchered. my name is alanna which is a simple irish name but it is mispronounced frequently outside of ireland.

colm and eamonn are beautiful irish names that i have always been fond of :)

I really like Ciaran and Saoirse as first names. As far as other names: Dante, Declan, Eire (Air-ih), Liam, Massimo, Paolo, Saoirse (seer-shuh), Tancredo

Saoirse Paolo
Ciaran Tancredo
Ciaran Paolo
Saoirse Tancredo

Eire is supposed to mean Ireland and Saoirse is supposed to mean Freedom.

I love Liam. :)

I know it's not pronounced like this, but Saoirse makes me think of seahorse. Sorry.

I'll give you my opinion on Italian names: the ones that have been suggested (most of them anyways) are really old fashioned and not used much.
Now, I don't really know much about Irish names, but what about Simone Kieran and Davide Seamus?
