What does it mean?
You’ve probably come across some strange Italian words, while browsing children’s cashmere on the fagiolinocashmere.com website. In Italy there are so many ways to call a baby or a child. This was an inspiration for Fagiolino Cashmere not only to name its articles.
Here just a few examples:
- Fagiolino = parents not knowing the sex of their baby calling it “fagiolino” meaning small bean.
- Amorino = tenderly calling the child my love. To call someone “amore” is reserved for the husband, boyfriend or lover.
- Patatina = even though translated small potato, it is often used for baby girls. There is even as song about it. Patatina piccolina,…
- Tuscany = “mimmo” or “mimma” depending if it’s a girl or a boy.
- Marches = “frichì” working for both genders and emphasizing the “ì”.
- Sicily = originated, but also commonly used in the rest of the territory: ”Piccino” descending from the word piccolo meaning little.
