Son nom est Dalida (lit. "Her Name is Dalida") is the debut album by French singer Dalida, released in 1957, by Barclay Records, catalogue number 80055. In 2002, Barclay Records, an imprint of Universal Music France, released a digitally remastered version of the original LP release in CD and 10" (25 cm) vinyl record (LP), under the same name, and also repackaged as Bambino, Volume 1. The album was again re-released in 2005, under the repackaged name of Bambino, Volume 1.


The album contains Dalida's first hit single "Bambino" and her first song that was ever on a record: "Madona." Her style here is really more exotic than pop, a musical style which changes for her future 1950s-1960s albums.
