Italy has gone through several distinct periods in its cultural development. As a result, the Italian language has a complicated system of rules regarding the correct formation of a person's name. First, male names must end with -o, like Alberto, Carlo or Angelo, whereas female names end with -a, like Alberta, Adriana or Elena.
Suffixes suggest the person's geographic origin, as in -ato for Venice or -ace for Calabria, and can also indicate the attitude. For example, -ino means little, and -accio has pejorative connotations. Besides, a person may be called after the name day on which he was baptized. And some names must start with a definite article, as in il Russo or l'Ariosto.
