Concetta Barra (née Grasso) (Procida, 11 February 1922 – Naples, 4 April 1993) was an Italian singer and actress, known for her songs in the Neapolitan language.
My middle name is Concetta, which I get from the Italian side of my family. Everyone from my grandmom and above is 100% Italian, and I got my middle name from my great grandmom. Her first name was Concetta. I think it's a pretty name, but when most people attempt to say it, it comes out as Kohn-set-Ta.
I think this name makes me unique, and having a history with it is pretty cool.
I am a Concetta, named after my mother, who was named after her Grandmother, who was named after hers. Personally, I like the name Concetta better than the more well known, Constance.
I like the fact that it has been passed down through the family, although, the only people that call/called me Concetta was my Mom, and the Nuns in Grammar school, to everyone else, I am known as Connie.
When I was around 11-12 years old, my Mom was the secretary for the Republican club in our town, but her name was mis-printed as Constance. This bothered me, and unknownst to my Mom, I sent a letter to the club, telling them that my mother's name was not Constance and to change it to her real name, Concetta. This caused some laughs, but it was changed.
I believe a person's full name is important, and always make a point of learning to say it correctly. It's true, sometimes a foreign pronunciation is hard for me, but I always try.
Having said that, I would have liked the diminutive, Cetta, to Connie, but as we don't live in Italy, it wasn't prevalent growing up.
Reminds me of conch shells, haha.

Concetta is the Italian form of Spanish Concepción, meaning "Conception."
Proper Italian pronunciation for Concetta:
A "C" before an "O" always makes a hard "K". In this case, pronounce the "O" as in "Oh, My Dear!". "C" before "E" makes "Che", which is almost a soft "Chay" sound. Pronounce both "TT"s, most easily accomplished by placing a bit extra emphasis on the letter before (Etta). "A" as is in "Father". [noted -ed]
There's a girl in one of my classes named Concetta, who goes by Connie. Considering that we're both of Italian descent, I'm surprised I hadn't heard the name before. It's pretty.
I don't particularly care for this name, but I don't hate it either. It's a little too frilly for my tastes.
I go to school with a Concetta, the second oldest daughter of a large Italian family, and she's in many of my classes. Every time we have a substitute teacher, her name is always mispronounced, so keep that in mind if you are considering naming a child this.
A beautiful name with its origin from the immaculate conception of the virgin Mary.
Concetta is definitely considered dated in Italy. Not many people nowadays use it. I personally find most Italian Marian names to be ugly and dated, but this one more so than the others.
Princess Superstar's real name is Concetta Kirschner.
I believe that in Italy this name is considered the ultimate in frumpy, country, old-lady names. I don't think it's so bad, though!
I think it's so pretty and sweet!
Singer Connie Francis was born Concetta Rosa Maria Franconero.
