Robust, timeless '- and Italian. Despite generations of steady use across all ethnicities, Tony remains the classic Italian-American name in our cultural imagination. That may account for its continuing freshness in an age where most of the English men's classics are losing steam. In fact, you were probably surprised to learn Anthony is as popular as it is, since it does not feel overused.
