Italians have a firm set of rules when it comes to naming. The first son is named after the paternal grandfather; the second son is named after the maternal grandfather. As for the females, the first daughter is named after the paternal grandmother and the second daughter is named after the maternal grandmother. The subsequent kids can be named after parents, aunts, uncles, deceased relatives, or saints. This all pervasive convention has led to many Italian families with children of similar ages having the same names.
