We asked: How would you Italian-icise your name (to help with a romantic introduction)? Our Italian readers had trouble, but most entries got the hang of it pretty well, and many captured the essential romantic Latin flavour with style and humour. The judges deliberated over the entries, aided by a Chianti, and chose the following winners, who will each receive one of 100 double passes to the Italian romantic comedy, The Last Kiss, for sneak previews (Sydney & Melbourne only) on the weekend of April 19 - 21. The Last Kiss releases April 25, 2002. Prizes courtesy Palace Films.

Judges’ favourites:
Peter Langmead: I think Langmedici would be a pretty impressive Italian name.

Nathan Hodge: The Compte d’Nathanavisi. Who can resist a title of unclear rank?

Nathan Kable: Nathanello Kabelli; if I could convince any girl it was my real name I could convince them romantically of anything I wanted.

Andrew Lim: Andre Limiano – the Duke of Dance, the Count of Cool, the Prince of Passion, the King of Swing, the Master of Canasta, the Lord of Lame One-Liners….

Keren Lavelle: I am tempted to go full-on and front-out with the name Booberella Intelligentsia, thus connoting my significant physical and intellectual attributes.

Steve Groves: My name would sound cool as Stefano Grovessi!

Freddie Lee: Freddielini
