For some reason, I always think of a villain when I look at this name. No offense to those named Salvatore, though! Wear your name proud. It's rare and wonderful.

Surname of Damon and Stefan, the vampire brothers from the show The Vampire Diaries. But they use a 3 syllable pronunciation, SAL-va-tor.

I like this name. It's very masculine and refined-sounding, plus all the ones I have met were nice. I sldo like the nickname Sal. I think it's a shame that Salvatore has become associated with that extremely offensive gay character from Mad Men.

It's a majestic name. Other nicknames not mentioned include Toto' and Turridu, somewhat old-fashioned.

I always thought it was pronounced sal-ca-tor, not even thinking about the fact that its an Italian name. I like sal-va-toe-rey too, although both versions seem a bit long. Sal is a cool nickname.

I really like the name, but I can't imagine it on a person my age or younger. It just sounds so old.

In the U.S. (and probably in other English-speaking countries), it is typically pronounced "SAL-va-tore." (I've known a couple.)
