I'm sure it's out there somewhere, thought I'd start here first.

While we're at it, I presume the Rocky was named for Rocky Graziano (or was it Rocky the Squirrel)? :unsure:

Could be urban myth... but.

I thought Silvia was one of the daughters of one of the designers of the Rancilio Silvia.

The Rocky? Good question.

Anyone?

Seems I read somewhere they (the espresso machines, not the grinders) were all named after Hollywood women, or maybe it was just famous women.

Audrey-Audrey Hepburn
Lucy-Lucille Ball
Nancy-???
Silvia-???
Others?
