Pure speculation, but perhaps the religious population of Italy is shying away from saints` names or Biblical names, and this is their way of still expressing their beliefs. A family who 40 years ago might have named their son Giovanni or Paolo would settle on Christian today. I would suspect that is the reason for the rise in Western countries as well.
