Giovannini is, actually, a surname while Giovannino (as Elba said) is little John.

Hmm, well that's certainly interesting, Luca...and much appreciated, too. It certainly makes researching my Italian roots even more interesting since my mom told me my MGGM's surname was Virgola. I've to this day been unable to locate any information at all on the Virgola name. Hmm...maybe she was a Giovannini! The story continues... :lol: :?

Thanks Luca.... I missed that. Should have been more careful!
