I have noticed that there are a handful of Italian christian names that are very simple and direct. For instance:-
Agosto - August
Domenico - Sunday
Ottavio - Eight
Primo - First
Quinto - Fifth
Sabatino - Saturday
This list is not exhaustive and does not go into surnames which follow the English where there are some that describe what trade the person/family had.
I like their simplicity and directness. I would imagine these types of names are declining in popularity as the parents go for something more sophisticated.
However, in the English speaking world I am sure there is some celebrity baby (Paris Hilton?) who is called Wednesday and a very happy child it is as well.
