Orsino is a beautiful boy's name of Italian origin. Taken from the Roman name Ursinus, which comes from Ursus, it means "bear." The reign of your little Orsino doesn't end with the animal kingdom, though, as it was also the name William Shakespeare chose for one of the protagonists of his off-the-wall comedy, Twelfth Night. Duke Orsino, a kind and trustworthy aristocrat, might come across as slightly more level-headed than the other characters in this plot of romance and confusion. So as you welcome your new addition, let the name Orsino be the hope you hold onto for calm, even in the chaos!
