Reply to: Italian feminine forms of Vincent by egyptianpanda
I've never heard Vincentia used. It would be Vincenza, which is used but not so much because is generally considered very ugly. There's also the nickname Enza as a possiblity (another name that's generally considered ugly). Victoria seems a stretch, and anyway the Italian form of Victoria is Vittoria.

Btw, Vincentio isn't used either, it's always Vincenzo. Shakespeare's Italian names are often a little weird, at least for modern standards.

Formerly Known as Murasaki
