    I can, but I can see 100% of kids finding him a new name!

    I think it could definitely lend itself to some pronunciation issues!

    I have only ever heard of someone having it who was Hispanic. Hence, the correct pronunciation.

    One of my good friends named her oldest son Javier. People pronounce it wrong- but it’s a great name.

    @red_rose:  Agreed, I think it’s a bit weird if you aren’t hispanic (similar to Jesus or Carlos) but if you like it that’s all that matters Smile

    I have an unheard of in the US name in italian/spanish, and everyone politely asks how to pronounce it, I explain, they learn it, and move on. takes about 30 seconds. use it!
