I think it's so pretty and sweet!

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!

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.

A beautiful name with its origin from the immaculate conception of the virgin Mary.

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.

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.

Concetta is the Italian form of Spanish Concepción, meaning "Conception."

Proper Italian pronunciation for Concetta:

Kohn-CHET-Tah

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]

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.
