The name Assunta comes from the Assumption (of the Blessed Virgin), not the Ascension (of Jesus Christ). Most of the time a girl is named Assunta Maria or Maria Assunta.

Just an old Italian lady name, really. Of course it sounds bad, and the first three letters, well.

The "u" is pronounced as in the word "put" and NOT like "umbrella." Therefore, the proper pronunciation is as follows: ah-suwn-tah.

Assunta is the Italian form of Spanish Asunción, which basically means, "Assumption." It is derived from the Latin "Absunta," and is a traditional and very common name in means that it reflects the devotion for the Virgin Mary.
