Love this idea
Thanks for the tag!
@NeahM as other people in this thread already said, Xolio isn’t an Italian name, nor have I personally ever heard it in Italy. And if he’s supposed to be born in Italy from an Italian family, then Xolio is really not the right name.
In Italy, Neutral 04 is considered a rather dark skin tone on a ‘native Italian’ (whatever that means, but I think you get the concept), so his family could be from the south or Sardinia, where people tend to be dark skinned, while pale people also exist in those areas! However, it’s worth noting that people with dark skin and dark hair (especially if black) in Italy tend to have dark eyes as well. Of course, black haired & blue eyed people exist, but if the complexion is so dark it’d be hard to see.
I don’t see why not! I personally don’t know why someone who’s not Italian (or has no Italian heritage) would want to learn our language, but it’s doable.
Np! (and let’s see what Cannella has to say/add )
Hello there, well I’m Italian and I’d say that if you want a specific skin tone you should define which time of the year is it and from which part of Italy does he come from.
Generally speaking, people from the south tend to have a darker skin tone with dark eyes and hair
Obviously this is generalised, since I’ve a friend that comes from Naples but has very light skin, blue eyes and blond hair (so this is just how generally people look)
The time of the year, this might sound stupid but we get tanned easily (in most cases) during the summer so it’s not that hard to find even Italians from the north very tanned, even if the people from the south have a darker tan
So, it’s obviously rarer to find a guy from the south (probably you’re gonna say he’s from there) with dark hair and skin but light blue eyes.
About the skin tone, if it’s summer it’s possible but I think a neutral 03 would look even better.
If we’re talking about Italian regions, just be original, it doesn’t exist just “Sicily” there are many more beautiful regions in which people tend to have darker skin tones, obviously if you’re gonna add some dialect, beware of using the correct one.
Sardinia, Campania, Puglia, Basilicata, Calabria,…
(These are the southerner regions)
If you’re looking for the north I’ll tell you more since I’m from there
We wrote the same things
And you’re right! I didn’t even look at the name but Italian names tend to be rather traditional.
And we have a beautiful language
Just look at Mika, he learned it just to host X-Factor here
So I can still say they are Italian?
Thank you so much
I won’t be able to use that name Xolio if he’s Italian?
@NeahM, if he’s a native Italian then no Xolio probably won’t work as his name (:
& again, it depends if your willing to listen to @/Malannee & @/Lady_Cannella 's advice on how to represent your character correctly (:
You’re welcome, obviously you can say he can just speak Italian, I can speak French but I’ve got nothing to do with France (concerning my name, surname or whatever)
But if you want him to be Italian, you should really choose another name, I’ve never heard it and the X is not a common letter that you find in traditional names
Cries in forever ghost-complexion
But I swear she’s right, I’m just the minority here sighh
Lmfao, that’s oke bebe
Che tesorino. Anyways, yes there might be several different reasons why someone might want to learn a language. So just get creative if that’s what you want~
Your welcome (:
Well I will say that he can speak Italian and not and Italian tho!
Yall know in which country people are name Xolio?
Btw I can speak French too!
I’m gonna keep speaking English to be fair, but which region are you from?
Feel ya, about the light skin, it takes me the full summer vacation to be tanned luckily it doesn’t go away in like a week after summer ends
I have no idea honestly, I’ve never heard of such a name, where did you find it?
By myself, I’ve never heard of this name aswell!
Voilà, I’ll translate for you what this does mean.
Xolo is used just for the 7% as a name and it has been found just 4 times in 2 countries: Mexico and USA
The other information are about Xolo as a surname
Ohh the name is Xolio
