I had no idea Roberto was Italian too. It's also Spanish. Maybe put that under Robert too because I had no idea. The only Roberto I know is Mexican.

Very fun quiz! If you're looking for more names, I'd suggest Guillermo--the Spanish form of William. One of those ones that's tricky if you don't know it but makes so much sense when you hear it! :-)

Interesting quiz,although I feel this is something that has become rather difficult these days, since names from all origins have become common pretty much everywhere with their original spelling.

Very interesting. I didn't know that Liam is William in Irish (and I learnt other things too). I'm French so I knew François, Georges, André, Pierre, etc. ^^

i guessed Petar and Petr. Im pretty sure both are Slavic spellings of Peter.

Yes, but Petar is not Russian, and Petr is how Russian would be transliterated if you forgot about the dots on ë that are optional but pronunciation always reflects them. Like Fedor/Fyodor
