A selection of names and their meanings
The Italian girls’ name Allegra means ‘joyful’. Occasionally, the name is spelt Alegra, without the double L.
The name Aurora has its roots in Roman Mythology and is a reference to the goddess of the dawn.
As an Italian variant of the name Klara, the name Chiara means ‘the bright’ or ‘the beautiful’.
The name Emilia is immensely popular. So far we’ve printed over 400 copies of our Search-and-Find World book for girls with this name.
The name Marcella appears less frequently, with so far only one of our orders having been printed with this Italian name. The origin comes from the god of war, Mars. It’s meaning therefore tends to be ‘the strong’ or ‘young warrior’.

Luciano means ‘light’ or ‘the child born at dawn’.
Derived from the Latin name Paulus comes Paolo, which means ‘the little one’. The Search-and-Find World books we’ve sold with this name seem to have been the most popular in Switzerland.
