Italians are family oriented people and follow customs strictly. Heading home with a baby is denoted by hanging a coloured bow on the doors announcing the newborn`s arrival and its gender to the neighbours and friends. The names given to the child are greatly influenced by family traditions and most of the babies are named after their maternal and paternal grandparents. This is why when a name is called out, five heads turn at the same time to respond.
Every child`s birth is first checked to relate it to a special day and only then named. But these traditions are slowly sinking now a days and parents have started naming their children without any specifications; but greeting a baby`s arrival has always been a joyful, traditional occasion.
Italian names are the most loved and the preferred ones because they are believed to be the most romantic names and carry loads of meaning with them. Most of the Italian names on saints are recognised by the Roman Catholic Church and hence are all the more favoured.
