You undoubtedly hope your little one will have these powerful attributes, and the name Pietro can encourage them towards that development. Another version of this name is the popular, Anglicized variant Peter. If you've always loved the name Peter but want to pay tribute to baby’s Italian heritage, Pietro would be a lovely choice.
