How about Stellaria? It's the genus for a type of wildflower, sometimes white with eight petals -- see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellaria -- but also references the idea of a star.

Carolyn

Your beret is absolutely beautiful ! I would quickly use the Villa Carlotta name because it is unique and after reading your post, someone else may take the name. Whatever name you choose will work for me.

lanarossa

What about Ice Capades? It made me think of ice skating.

MrsMK

I am terrible at naming things, but just had to tell you that I love this beret!! I will be watching for the pattern!

Jeanie

Hello! How about "Azalee"? When I was a kid, I had always wanted to have that name. It means "she who sings", and there is a villa in Florence called Albergo Villa Azalee. :-)

Becky

I think it's lovely.. I would suggest "eightfold path" as a name...

orata

How about La Fiorentina? The flowery/fountainy shapes remind me a bit of the fleur-de-lis symbol of Florence, and it's a pretty name.

Kerry P.

Gorgeous beret! How about calling it 'the secret garden beret'?

Dawn

In the top photo, the lace reminds me of umbrellas. How about Raining Stars?

Svati

I think that the hat is magnificent and graceful. To me, it reveals great skill but a beret often conveys a certain nonchalance. Given all that and its Italian heritage, I suggest Sprezzatura.

Kimberley

Gorgeous beret! It reminds me of a star (the kind in children's Christmas picture books). What about Estrella?

Guylaine

Splendid beret, I love it !!! You look as Snow White... and If this fairy tale had taken place in winter she would have worn this hat... so why not... "Snow White Beret" :-)

Debbie

Very nice! When I first saw the hat, before I read anything, I actually thought of a poinsettia! The second two thoughts that came to my mind were Super Nova and Starburst. Lovely hat!

Cinzia

Interludio invernale?
In qualsiasi modo lo chiamerai, sappi che il tuo cappello è bellissimo!!!
Buona giornata

Janet Daniels

I haven't read the other comments, but "Parapluies" is my suggestion. I see umbrellas in this beret.

Aimee Nemeth

My first thought was of the flower commonly known as "shooting star," but then I also thought the design reminded me of a flying bird, particularly the sandhill cranes that I often see around here (Wyoming). Their long legs are extended back when they fly. It's a beautiful design!

Connie

My Italian is rusty - I really need to bone up on it before our Christmas trip out to visit my in-laws. I think they must think I'm very dim since my Italian has been stagnant, if not regressed in the past 3 years!

Anyway, lovely beret. I might suggest Cappello Cascata? I'm always amazed by your versatility and your equal skill in pulling off children's garments, women's garments, and accessories. Brava e complimenti!

Krysten

What about Carota? Your design (so pretty and dainty) reminds me of Queen Anne's Lace. The latin name is daucus carota.

Typesetter

Poinsettia in Italian is commonly known as stella di Natale (Cristmas star). Sponds fitting, IMHO.

Also, a group of knitters is planning to start a Stitch 'n' Bitch in Como, more details here: http://tinyurl.com/3kmjh4

I like the star theme here - so I'm suggesting Stella, Starlight or Starlet.
