Giacomo Puccini: A Name in Classical Music
We know the composer of such operas as Madam Butterfly, Tosca, and La Bohéme simply as Giacomo Puccini.
He was the fifth child of seven, and was actually named in honor of several of his forebears, who were all distinguished musicians and composers.
His full name is actually Giacomo Antonio Domenico Michele Secondo Maria Puccini. Wow!
