Every Monday we will post an entry that hasn’t yet been published with a view towards harnessing the collective onomastic power of the internet. If you have any thoughts about the name’s origin, other variants it might be related to, other examples of its use, etc., please share them in the comments! If you wish to browse other Mystery Monday names, there is an index.

We’ve been working in the G’s lately, in preparation for the next edition, and today’s mystery name is a feminine one from Italy. We’ve never seen anything else like it; have you? Do you have any thoughts concerning it’s etymology and origin? Please let us know!
