At first I thought the child's name in this death certificate was Gaetana,; it's not but I can't figure out what the correct name is.

Thanks, Livio, that name was eluding me.

I have another challenging name on this child's birth certificate.

That's rather an unusual name, isn't it?

Giloramo, Francesco Salvatore :?: :?: :?:

Still unusual, the usual name is Girolamo...

Thanks Livio. I wonder if the person writing the name transposed the letters and the name should be Girolamo. We'll never know. In the following promessa the husband's name is unclear and it also appears that the bride stipulates that she be called Rosa although two other names are listed.

The husband's name looks like Cavino (or Carino) Gabuti. Both first names are not existant.

The Bride is Rosa, Domenica, Angela Dragotto

Thanks everyone, I was thinking Cosimo Garuti? I have another birth document in Latin. I'm curious to whom the reference "sister" applies? And of course the other information as well.

Anno Domini millesimo octingentesimo decimo quarto (1814)
Die Vigesima septima mensisi decembris
Ego Parochus Joseph Ficarra baptizavi sub conditione (do you remember?)
infantem heri natum ex Rosario Monte, et Carmela Allotta
jugalibus cui impositum est nomen Christina, Joanna.
Patrini Joseph Greco, et Joanna eius soror.

L'anno del Signore milleottocentoquattordici (1814)
il giorno 27 del mese di Dicembre.
Io Parroco Giuseppe Ficarra battezzai "sub Conditione"*
un'infante nata ieri dai coniugi Rosario Monte, e Carmela Allotta
cui fu imposto il nome di Cristina, Giovanna.
Padrini Giuseppe Greco e Giovanna sua sorella (Giovanna was Giuseppe's sister).

Thanks, Luca. I hoping I'll improve my Latin so that I can understand more of this on my own but it is always helpful to have a second, and much better, opinion :) I can tell if one of the parents is a Dragotto in this birth document.
