    I'd say Valley of the Rooster.

    The second is "Awake with the rooster" or "Time of the rooster".

    Gallo is also a northern region/town of Italy and a common last name.

    Why do you say Southern?

    and svegli(o) is awake-not svegli(a)

    Quote:I edited it out but "del" can mean southern too.

    Svegli is awake as well as sveglia.


    This is all based on context, region, dialect. Translation software is limited,
    not to mention my Italian.

    I agree purple-there are a variety of translations. At least the OP can be assured that they are not giving off some strange message to Italians! [​IMG]
