Italian nicknames/endearments between siblings

I am writing a story set in modern New York City. The main character comes from an Italian family and has picked up a lot of mannerisms and phrases from her grandfather, who's a first-generation immigrant. She is about 20 or so and the youngest among 3 older brothers.

What would she call her brother? I'm looking for endearments, mostly. He is about 23 or so, as well as the proverbial "black sheep", while she is very loyal to her family. They're close, though.
If possible, maybe some other endearments/phrases expressing anger, exasperation, surprise, etc.

Ideas, anyone? Thanks in advance.
