Does anybody know how Carlo Collodi came up with the name Pinocchio? As far as I remember, Gepetto names the puppet Pinocchio because he once knew a family of Pinocchios and they were all very lucky. Does anybody know if Pinocchio is a real Italian name or if it comes from a certain Italian word? I know picchio is the Italian for woodpecker. Just random thoughts triggered by Cinderella and the other Literature characters... :o)
