I'm sorry, but the problem with this name is that Don Giovanni, the title character of Mozart's opera, is not exactly a nice person to be named after. He keeps a book filled with the names of all the woman he has seduced! (I believe the count is in the thousands...)

My nephew's first name is Giovanni. I really like it. It isn't overused. I find it unique. I would use it for my own kids if I could.

In Susan Kay's novel Phantom, Giovanni is an old stonemason who takes a young Erik on as an apprentice for several years. He was very kind and loving, almost like a father.

Giovanni was by far the most common name in Italy in the late Middle Ages (13th-16th centuries), and since then it has always been among the most frequently given names. It is still rather popular today (18th most popular name in Italy in 2004, 20th in 2006). An ageless name.

Hate to rain on your parade again, but it's not. I wonder where you get your information. There is, however, the Italian word “giovane”, which _does_ mean young man or woman.
