Famiglia mother = madre mom = mamma father = padre dad = papà But what does means babbo? Are there any other names for mom and dad in Italian? or names for sister and brother like we use "sis or bro"?

/babbo/ is used in Tuscany (mostly) with the meaning of /father/ and also of /dad/. Anybody in Italy understands the meaning of 'babbo'. (Tuscany is a beautiful region 160 km north of Rome, and in its center there is Florence (Firenze)). People from Tuscany are well known to speak very good Italian. Also Mr. Dante Alighieri was from Tuscany.
