Help! My hubby and I can't seem to agree on any names. He is hispanic, I am white.

So, here are our ideas. Please be honest about your opinions:

boys:

alejandro miguel / miguel alejandro
diego felipe
raphael (middle name?)

girls:

esperansa mia / mia esperansa
nadia grace

that's about as far as we've gotten. What do you guys think of esperansa, seriously? Are there any other hispanic names you guys can think of that are attractive? Thanks!

Hello! I noticed noone had replied to your post yet and I know how annoying it is to not get any replies!! Anyway, about your post. I'm not into spainish or anything and I have no idea how to pronouce any of what you wrote, lol. Maybe some hispanics will see it and help you out. But I did know this mexican in school and her name was vanessa. I always liked that name Wink .

Re: Anglo/hispanic Names?
Hello I am hispanic (dominican) amd so is my husband (cuban) and we wanted to choose names that sounded both good in spanish and english. We have two children trying for a third. My daughter's name is karina denise, my son's name is isaac daniel and if the next one is a boy we want to name him isaiah david (in spanish it is pronounced ee-sa-ee-ah da-vi-d) and if it is a girl we want to name her kayla dorinda which dorinda means a gift from god (in spanish it is pronounced do-rreen-da) some other names that sound good are janelle, gisele, jackie, jacqueline, samantha, jasmine, sabrina, jesenia for girls and israel(in spanish it is pronounced ee-srra-el), william, johnny,abraham, jacob, joseph or to make it simple juan or marco (lol). In spanish you would always have to roll the r's. Hope this helped you out a little bit Laughing great luck to you!!

Same Situation
My boyfriend is hispanic as well. Im not to fond of the boy names like raul, jesus, roberto, juan...Its just not my style. So we agreed on alex for a boy (a little white, a little hispanic) and cianna for a girl. I really really wanted malibu, but he wasnt having that.

I like all the boys names =0) they're cute! Alejandro would have the nickname (most likely) alex, so it transfers to caucasian quickly too. Diego is very masculine and reminds me for some reason of zorro...I don't know why.

I'm not too fond of nadia myself...But that's because i've known two and they both frightened me...Haha.

Esperanza. Beautimous! Esperanza mia means my hope in spanish...And italian...So I love it!

Baby Names
Hi everyone! I am only 6 weeks pregnant, but this will be my third child. My husband was brought up by a black family but he is hondurean and my family is mexican. He cannot stand spanish names!!! My other 2 kids are not biologically his so my son's name is jose angel and my daughter's name is jazmine adrianna.
Anyhow for a girl he wants to name her.....Jazlynn micah! Cute but if it's a girl I want to name her erykah, which is the girl version of his name (differently spelled) or damita, which means baby princess.
Neither one of us has came up with a boy's name though, that's how I ended up in this forum. I was trying to get ideas from other people out there. :)

I hate to say this but I am not very fond of esperanza. I do like that it stands for hope, but then I just like the name hope by itself. I know that I have a longer first name like that and it was annoying growing up. Here are some of the spanish names that I like, but it’s your baby so of course do what you please :0)
alita: meaning noble
anica: meaning graceful
azura: meaning sky blue
neva: meaning snow
malaya: meaning free
melisenda: meaning honest & diligent (calling her meli for short)
mireya: meaning miraculous
reina: meaning peaceful, queen
reya: meaning queen

hope that helps!!

My husband is hispanic and I am white. We chose Jada Marie they are both spanish yet work well in english. There are SO many names out there that are spanish and tranfer well to english you don't have to go extremely ethnic to get a spanish name either.

For the boy I love the name Diego, for the girl I don't really care for Esperanza but there are a billion names that you could choose from that are great, there is Alexandria which can be in english and spanish, there is Jessenia or Jessica, Linda which means beautiful, Jolie which is short for Yolanda, and then a big thing with hispanics is also biblical names like Jose or Joseph, Miriam, Maria, David, etc. we have decided on names that his grandmother can pronounce as well so Jada was easy but Julia or Julianna works for us as well...Julio is a nice hispanic male name, Carlos, Antonio, Santos, Edwin, Jamie (pronounced Hymie in spanish), Juan...I think that you have a ton to work with that don't have to be extremely ethnic or hard to pronounce....remember your child will go to school with people that don't speak spanish and will have to pronounce the name as well so that can be tough when a name gets butchered.

Here are some other girl ones: Katrina, Maribella, Sylvia, Sophia, Bianca, Jade, Joanna, Isabelle

You probably had your baby already...
Joanna Isabelle is a perfect name because it sounds great in both Spanish and English (and Joanna is a universal name. It's used a lot in germanic and romance languages.)

Isabelle is cute and pretty. Isabelle is a sophisticated name is Spanish and it's a cute name in English.

(I know this from personal experiance ^_^)
