Beyond a shadow of a doubt, Ombretta is the perfect name for baby—and no shade to the other names out there! This mysterious and otherworldly feminine name has Italian roots and means “shadow” or “shade,” derived from the Italian word ombra. Interestingly, in Italian, there is no distinction between these two concepts: the dark shape cast on the ground by the illumination of an object and the dark shelter created by an object in sunlight. Parents who love the spookier side of life will also love the depth and dimension of this original choice. And, while this name might have spent some much time in the shadows, it is due for its moment in the sun! And we think that Italian singer, actress, and politician Ombretta Colli, who shares this shadowy signature, would agree.
