    If Dio were alive he'd explain that they are not nor ever were horns.

Dio says that his grandmother used to make the hand gesture to ward off the evil eye, which is very common among superstitious Southern Italians. The "horns," or "Corna," themselves are used both to scare away and give someone the "Malocchio" (the Evil Eye).

    I'll assume you meant to say that they weren't devil horns (which I didn't mention.) They are, in fact, horns. Corna, in italian, even means horns. We'll chalk this up to a new parent being in a tired, hallucinatory state.
