About This Quiz

Italy is a nation with a grand and glorious history that goes all the way back beyond the Roman Empire. Thanks to said empire, the Italian culture is one of the most influential in the world, with Italy's architecture, language, art, philosophy and (praise the Lord) food being beloved by many millions of people all across the world. That means that, no matter whether you have a drop of Italian blood in you or not, you have a smidge of Italian about you. You can't help it, and you wouldn't want to.

Indeed, Italy is so marvelous that most visitors do tend to wonder why anyone would ever leave. The landscape is beautiful; the weather is perfect; the people are friendly; the language sounds like music; and some of the best art, music and design in the world can be found there. Other than the fact that Italy seems to be mysteriously unable to forge a lasting government or stamp out endemic corruption, it's truly a blessed land. That's why so many people visit every year, to soak up a little more of that Italian-ness we all treasure.

This means, of course, that we all have an Italian name. It's time to find yours!
