"The Positano" is an English equivalent of the Italian phrase Il Positano. The masculine singular definite article and noun reference a small southern peninsular town on Italy's Amalfi Coast and traces its origins back to a stormy voice telling pirates to Posa ("Put down!") their theft of a precious black Madonna icon where the Campania region now claims the above-mentioned town. The pronunciation will be "eel PO-see-TA-no" in Italian.

"Conflux" and "siren" are English equivalents of the Italian name Sorrento.

Specifically, the name functions as a proper place name in Italian. Etymologists generally link the name's origins with the original ancient Greek recognition of the place's confluence or meeting-place of waters. But some also suggest that the locale has an ancient history as the gathering-place of sirens.

Whatever the meaning, the pronunciation will be "sor-REN-to" in Italian.
