Why do many magicians Use Italian Names? Many of the Café members also use Italian names .

Hadn't noticed it myself vinny. However, they do stereotypically have a romantic and passionate streak about them - good magical qualities.

Most importantly, they use their hands a lot when speaking - great for misdirection.

Randy the most used gesture with the hands of course is the Italian Salute.

Vinny-- Is it possible that these Magician's and all of us here at the Café are in fact all from Italy?

I'm thinking it is more coincidence, than for any other reason, Vinny.

Growing up I knew a fellow we called "Spaghetti Freddy". He had a sister "Ellie" Poncherelli. The italian names were more rhyming, as you can see.

I think it's because Doug Henning was Italian... oh... wait.

Hi Håkan.
Maybe, but if it is then that originates from when Henry v invaded France.
If you don't know the story let me know.
By the way where in Sweden are you.

Maybe because many of the magicians here are Italians?
Message: Posted by: jonesc2ii (Nov 26, 2003 03:04PM)
Maybe it's something to do with the fact that Houdini sounds Italian, even though it isn't?
