Donatella


"Cinderella Castle" by Maja Wronska


Gender: Feminine
Pronunciation: do-nah-TEL-lah

Today my baby cousin was born, and her name is Donatella. To honour her birth, I decided to post this name :).

Donatella is the feminine Italian diminutive of the name Donato, which comes from the Latin Donatus meaning "given". The name used to be given to children whose parents waited at length for a child.

This is the name of Italian fashion designer, Donatella Versace. It is also the name of a character in "West Wing".
