Actually I have one of those long Italian names that ends in "ello" but no one, and I mean NO ONE has ever pronounced it correctly so I stopped using the whole thing. No one mispronounces (or mis-reads since we are not actually speaking aloud...) just Tross. So, I have never heard the "do you have a sister named Alba" line... It's a good one though, I like it. I may change my screen name to it...

One of our regular contributors here is trilingual - she is an Italian mathematician with excellent English. If anybody could say your name properly, it would be emanuela

Yes, please let us all have a go at the loooooooong Italian name -- it sounds delightful to me.
