The meaning of Annunciata translates to ‘annunciation of the Lord Almighty’, ‘annunciation to the noble Virgin Mary’ and is of Italian origin. This is a religious holy name and refers to Virgin Mary announcing to the people that she was going to bear a child. The Virgin Mary received the word from Angel Gabriel about the arrival of Christ, the Son of God. He informs Virgin Mary to name her child Jesus. Princess Maria Annunciata Isabella of Bourbon-Two Sicilies is one of the notable bearers of this name. She was the mother of the Austrian origin Archduke Franz Ferdinand. It was the events revolving around this archduke and his assassination in 1914 that became a cause for the start of World War I.
