    I only really like Aria out of your 3 names. And I love Aria.

    Not a fan of Allegra.

    Dominic could be okay. But Angelo is also nice. I know you’re not so keen on the Italian names but I’m going to try and post a few anyway because I LOVE Italian names but have not an ounce of Italian in me so it would be too pretentious if I used them. Have you considered Emilio (Leo), Matteo (Matt), Luca (Luke), Gino, Giuseppe (Pep…. granted this one is maybe a bit too Italian for you), Rossano (Ross), Leonardo (Leo), Alessandro (Alex), Alfredo (Alfie), Benedict (Ben), Cosmo (probs too weird for you), Massimo (Max), Nico (Nick), Orlando, Dino, David (it’s Italian????), Pasquale (pretty Italian but loved this name on kids at school), Rafaele (Raf), Ricardo (Rick/Richie/Ricky), Roberto (Rob/Bobby), Stefano (Stef), Romeo, Sebastiano (Seb), Teodoro (Teo), Tommaso (Tom), Vincenzo (Vince/Enzo). Sorry if you hate all of these suggestions – I just figured it might be easier to get your husband agree to a name you like if you choose a name from an Italian background but one that you love yourself.

    Let me know what you think!

    Aria is really pretty!

    What does allegra mean in musical terms? It’s hard to disassociate from the other meaning for me. 🙂

    My friend’s daughter is named Allegra and she’s now 32, so I’ve been using it for years. Great name,btw.

    Aria is nice too, but I really don’t care for Dominic.

    I love Dominic as it’s a family name and I actually don’t mind Allegra and Aria. I’d just worry that maybe they’re too similar to each other, you know?

    I dont like Allegra..  I play an instrument and  I know that Allegro describes a brisk and upbeat tempo but its hard to hear Allegra and not think of the medicine because the commericials are constantly on the tv.

    ETA: I actually prefer the girl version of Dominic = Dominique

    I like Aria better then Allegra.

    Not a huge fan of Dominic. I think of the sleazy dad on Kindergarten Cop. Ha.

    Ummm, I really like Matteo and Nicholas.

    I love them! 

    I know a few Dominics and they’re great guys, so that’s a name that I associate with good people 🙂 

    I love Aria – never known anyone with this name but I think it’s so pretty. I love simple, easy to spell, easy to pronounce names and this one is just beautiful.

    I never liked Dominic, but that is mostly because all Dominics I ever knew were A-holes, so I am biased.  It seems to become more popular as a name, though. I know of two Dominics who were born within the last couple of months.

    I prefer Aria over Allegra.

    I like Umberto. Maybe that’s just because I like Umberto Eco’s books, though. Or Romeo? Maybe you could find some good ideas in Romeo and Juliet. Italian opera has some nice names. I understand wanting to stay away from the stereotypical Italian American names that evoke The Sopranos and The Godfather. 🙂

    For girls, I like Sofia and Annunziata and Fabiana. (I just think “Fabiana” oozes elegance.)
