How are Italian male names chosen?

Answer

Traditionally, Italian families will name their male children after a name that is from their grandparents' side of the family. They will choose from the dad's side of the family first and then the mom's. Per tradition, the first male is names after his paternal grandfather and the second male is named after his maternal grandfather. Should the you have more than two males, you would name them after a favorite uncle, a saint, or a deceased relative.
