This diminutive form of Gianna landed on the baby-name charts in the 1960s but didn’t make any noise until the 21st century. That’s when Italian female names became a thing with American parents, and Gia fit right in. It’s simple and elegant and has a cool old-world feel. Actor Matt Damon has a daughter named Gia, born in 2008, as does “Extra” host Mario Lopez, whose little girl was born in 2010.
