Peppe is an Italian name that means 'God's name will prosper'. It comes from Giuseppe, the Italian version of the Hebrew name Joseph. Peppe (Giuseppe) has always been popular worldwide in Italy and Italian communities. Joseph has always been a popular name amongst Jewish communities. It's moderately easy to pronounce Pep-ee, so there isn't an Italian flair at the end, although there's no reason parents couldn't choose to pronounce it Pep-pay. It is a rare name that generally has been given to boys.
