In Brazil, the name Adriano peaked in popularity in the 70s, still popular though with less intensity in the 80s and becoming less used in the following decades. Currently, as sampling, we can mention that in the state of São Paulo, in 2014, according to Arpen / SP, there were 162 boys named Adriano.
In addition, there were 327 boys and even called Adrian, 12 boys called Hadrian.
Note that despite the fall in popularity and having been replaced by other names considered most modern, Adriano is still being used moderately, with some variations.

Italian Pronunciation:

Ah-Dree-Ah-Noh

"A" is always pronounced as the "A" in "Father." Roll your "R." Follow by stressing the "I" in "Dri" to "EE." Once again, "A" as in "Father." "No" is as usual, "Noh."
