Assunta de Rossi introduces her newborn daughter Fiore on her Instagram.
In her caption, the new mother tells the story behind Fiore's full name, which is Giulia Fiorentina Alessandra.
The first two names is a tribute to her great-grandparents on the paternal side of the family.
Giulia, as Assunta writes, is pronounced just like Julia. The Italian alphabet doesn't have a letter J, so it is spelled with "Gi."
The name is "a tribute to her paternal great-grandfather, Don Julio."
As for Fiorentina, the name is "a tribute to her paternal great-grandmother, Doña Florentina aka Lola Puring."
Assunta chooses the Italian spelling for Fiore's name.
The actress also posts a photo of "Lola Puring and Don Julio."
As for Alessandra, the name is indeed a tribute to her sister. It is also a homage to their "Lola Alejandra aka Inang."
Plus, Assunta likes the meaning of Alessandra, which is "defender/protector."
The celebrity mom then says, "I hope she knows how much we wanted her."
Assunta and husband Jules Ledesma welcomed their daughter Fiore on October 23, 2020.
