Snooki (Once Again) Reveals Name Choice For Her Impending Baby Boy

Snooki (Once Again) Reveals Name Choice For Her Impending Baby Boy
Fame/Flynet

Snooki has done a lot of baby name talk, both before and after her pregnancy was announced several months ago, but it looks as if she and finance, Jionni Lavalle, have finally decided on a name for their baby boy. Snooki revealed the traditional Italian name for their baby, due later this year, to Good Morning America correspondent JuJu Chang on Monday.

In March, Snooki revealed her short list of baby name choices and it looks as though she chose a name straight from the list -- Lorenzo. As she told Good Morning America, "I think we're going to do Lorenzo because then you can call him Enzo." 

Lorenzo, which comes from Laurentum, a city near Rome, has been consistently popular throughout the years, generally appearing in the 300s in the Top 1000 names. In 2011 it ranked at No. 310. Enzo itself has also come in to popularity recently, rising to No. 400 in 2011. 

A couple years back Snooki told the press that she liked the name Frankie for a baby boy, but this past March revealed that her choices had changed somewhat. Other than Lorenzo, she listed Jionni Jr., Tommy and Tony as other options. 

She still has a few more months to change her mind, but she has also stated that they will definitely give their child "normal names…It's going to be a nice traditional Italian name."

What do you think of Snooki's baby name choice? Do you prefer Lorenzo or Enzo?

My understanding is that the name is not so much after the city but the italian version of what would be Lawrence-Henry in English. I have also know of a Vincenzo. Vincent-Henry.
