Nomi unisex el paeseni

In el country i unisex names, therefore that are good for both a boy and a girl, they are very few because the culture and tradition of choosing a neutral name are not very rooted. We also remember that it is quite common to add the female name Maria after the male name for a child. Furthermore, until a few decades ago the name Mattia, especially in the southern regions, was a typically feminine name. 


here are the 5 unisex names and the most popular villages:

  • Andrea;
  • Felice;
