You need to choose something that has meaning to you! We follow tradition throughout my family of using the father's name or middle name (or go back a generation). The women in my family usually carry the middle name over to next of kin also.

Good luck!

Hello! I'm Italian and I have to say in Italy is starting to take hold the use of foreign names for children, taken from cinema or sports stars (Christian, Kevin, Chantal, Nicholas...). I must say I'm not happy of that; I wonder why they do not choose an Italian name, or an Italian equivalent when existent (but maybe I'm growing old, as I'm 51) like Cristiano or Nicola. My children took their names from their GF's (Vittorio and Benedetto), and I'm proud of that. Of course, I'm a genealogist, and this is a tradition carry on for me. It's hard to say what name would be good for you baby. It also depends on how it sound to your ears. For instance, I'd say "Francesco", typically Italian, as St. Francis of Assisi is our patron saint. It's quite popular, and not considered "strange".
