    Trendiest Italian-inspired baby names

    When it comes to style, Italians seem to always be one step ahead. From fashion to cuisine, the European country has its pulse on the trends of today and tomorrow. This also extends to baby names. Today, more and more Italian-Americans and non-Italians alike are naming their children after the hip Europeans that have helped define style for decades.

    Using Italian census data from Istat, Stacker ranked the most popular baby names of 2016 — 50 girls’ names and 50 boys’ names. For additional context, they also provided statistics including the number of babies born with that name in Italy, the percent of girl/boy babies born in Italy that year with that name, and the rank and number of babies born in 2016 in the U.S. with that same name or an English equivalent. See the list and get a sense of the names — like Emma, Leonardo and Isabel —that will likely be popping up more and more in Kindergarten classrooms.
