My best Italian friend is Anthony (Tony).  Why not Antonio I have no idea, but it works for him.  I also know a Lorenzo and he’s not Italian at all. 

If we could pull it off my husband would name a would-be boy child Filipe (Fil).

@Sanola831:  I dont think it would be weird. Most people dont know the origins of names. What is the gaelic name you like?


I also second the suggestion of nymbler. Its a really good site for getting ideas for names.

@Sanola831:  I went to school with an Anthony! He said once at the beginning of each year “No, I just go by Anothony.” And everyone listened!

Or Dominic, or Damien?

Personally I’d be more worried about the nickname gay than Tony. I know several Anthonys and none of them are called Tony. But honestly if you like Gaelic then go for it don’t worry about the last name too much unless it sounds comical we have a last name that makes certain names sound villainous lol
