Meaning:Joy, happiness
Remind baby how much happiness and light they bring to the world with the sweet Italian name Gioia. As a variant of the long-loved moniker Joy, it is a more unique choice that still boasts the same beautiful meaning of “joy” or “happiness.” Gioia stems from the Italian gioia, which translates to “joy,” “jewel,” or “precious object,” perfect for babies who radiate cheerfulness. It is thought to come from a nickname for people who consistently used the expression mia gioia, meaning “my joy.” How sweet!
