English is ethnic, no? 

I like Welsh names, and French names.  I love the name Etienne.

I love Italian names.  All of them… Giuseppina, Gianna, Paola, Francesca, Vincenzo, Giovanni all of them.  Im not in the slightest bit Italian and neither is my husband so it might be odd for us to use them.

@HonoraryNerd:   Well, I am mexican so yeah many spanish names hehe. Lucero is actually more like “Morning Light”. Light would be Luz, which is commonly used as a name around here.

@HonoraryNerd:  The dictionary translates “Lucero” as the morning “star”. So that would be Venus lol.

@HonoraryNerd:  Do Tobias and/or Claudia count?  Those are the names we like best and neither is considered an English name even though they are pretty easy to pronounce in English.

My kids will have Hebrew names.

I don’t like using the term “ethnic” to denote non-Anglo.

@HonoraryNerd:  My favorite girl’s name has always been Marisol. I’m Mexican so I actually have three cousins and two aunts with that name. 🙂 I also like Esperanza (Hope) and really Mari-anything. Mariluz is another pretty one. 

Also… perhaps this thread would be better titled “Favorite non-Anglo names”. Cause, yeah, “ethnic” is sticky.
