Medieval Italian Names - Girls

"Belcolore" by Rossetti

I have a great love for Italian names - to me they represent some of the most gorgeous, romantic names in the world, so I was head over heels for most of the names on this list! I can't verify the authenticity of these being used during the Medieval era, so take that with a grain of salt, but I couldn't not post about some of them. Please let me know your favorites and thoughts!

Belcolore - Means "beautiful color", used by Boccaccio in "The Decameron"
Ghisolabella - A real life Ghisolabella was the sister of Venedico Caccianemico, a 13th-century politician; both were mentioned in Dante's "Inferno"
Pantasilea - Italian form of Penthesilea
Smeralda - Means "emerald" - this was the name of Botticelli's mother
Vannozza - Vannozza dei Cattanei was the mistress of Pope Alexander VI and the mother of Cesare, Lucrezia, Giovanni, and Gioffre Borgia
