Oddities about italian origin names, Sicily genealogy

Traditionally, Sicilians used to name their children after a grandparent, choosing names from the father’s side of the family first or from the mother’s side. Children can also be named after the patron Saint of the town where they are born or after a  Saint their parents are particularly devoted to.

In modern times, however, new names are gradually replacing traditional ones and children very often bear the name of a famous movie character rather than that of a relative or a protective Saint!
