Ever since we first found out that Snooki would be naming her baby boy Lorenzo Dominic, the name just sounded perfect. Snooki has said in the past that she just liked the name, and looked forward to calling her son ‘Enzo. But it turns out that there’s a more sentimental reason for ‘Enzo’s middle name.

As we initially reported, Lorenzo got his first name because his parents just liked the sound of it. “We were going back and forth,” Jionni explained in an interview with People magazine, “and I just happened to think of Lorenzo. [Snooki] loved it.”

But what about their son’s middle name, Dominic? Snooki explains why they chose the name.

“And Dominic’s my uncle, who died,” she says. “So I did it for my dad.”

We love the family tribute, and we’re sure her proud Papa Snooki appreciates it as well.
