Oops I didn't mean it was an Italian name, I meant the origin of the word was Italian.

From wikipedia:
Quote:
Donna is an English language feminine first name meaning lady in Italian. The original meaning is closer to lady of the home and was a title of respect, equivalent to Don for men.
And another possible origin which I'd never heard of before:

Quote:
It is the modern feminine form of “Donald” meaning “world ruler,” which has Gaelic origins.
