Rob and Amber Mariano, reality TV stars best known from their days as contestants on Survivor and the Amazing Race welcomed their fourth daughter on June 20th.  True to their style, they stuck with their easily identifiable naming style that they've set in stone over the course of naming four daughters.

Their newest daughter, named Adelina Rose Mariano, follows in the footsteps of her sisters, who also have decidedly Italian first names ending in -a: Lucia, Carina, and Isabetta.  The name Adelina jumped back into the top 1,000 names in 2010 after a previous period of popularity from the 1880s until the 1930s when it fell out of the top 1,000, The name Adelina was the 619th most popular name in 2013.  The Marianos have a history of picking Italian names that sound current but not too popular, with Lucia being the most popular name they have chosen and Isabetta being the most uncommon name they have chosen for their daughters.

The Marianos continued with another trend that we wrote about back when Isabetta was born in 2012 by giving Adelina the middle name of Rose.  All of the Mariano girls share this same middle name, which is also a middle name shared by several members of Rob's family.  Rose is a sweet and common middle name, and the tradition behind the Mariano girls middle names is a wonderful one to share.

What do you think of the name Adelina?  Are there other Italian names that you would consider using?
