I don’t really understand.  I mean- yes if you are looking for something TRUELY authentic then I get your point.  But a lot of people like the sound of a name and may not care if it is an outdated name in Italy or is a nickname.

I agree to a certain extent that many name sites say a name has a french origin, and another will say it’s irish etc… but unless you’re looking for a name of a very specific origin only it shouldn’t be a huge issue.

How do you know if those names are really used? Do you know everyone? I like unique names and think it’s fun to have something different. I would much rather use an old fashioned name then something that everyone uses today.

Sometimes a name has more than one origin.  My daughters name is Italian, French and Spanish.

One of my students wanted to look up his name the other day and it literally means:

God Son of God God is Good 

 

….WOW

I know what you mean I’ve seen that before too. For example, Sasha is a Russian nickname for Aleksandr…… but who really cares? If you’re not Russian and you want to name your kid Sasha go ahead. Does it really matter that the ‘real’ name is Aleksandr? What if you don’t even like the name Aleksandr?
