DH and I have names for girls picked out, but we are stuck on a boy’s name we both really like. We are Latino and prefer names that can be pronounced in Spanish and English (like Gabriel or Daniel), but because we have the MOST common Spanish last name in the world, I’d rather have a name that’s slightly unique. I really like “Joaquin,” but DH isn’t sold on it.
I’d love to see what you fellow Bees can come up with! Thanks
I remember a boy in high school who was named Lorenzo. I always thought it was such a lovely name. It has a nice flow and overall sound to it, IMO.
Love Joaquin. I also like Raul, that was my grandfather’s name, and you don’t hear it often anymore.
joaquin is on our list of baby names too
our other favorites are mateo, diego, and benicio. i really like julian too, but my sister in law beat us to it.
One of my best friends named her son Javier.
I’ve always liked the name Diego.
@eeniebeans: Oooh I really like Javier.
when the time comes, we will be going with Lucas.
other options I’ve considered that can be pronounced in either fairly easily…
Ian, Christian, Liam, Daniel, Luis, Evan
Fulgencio!! (Modern Family anyone?)
On a serious note, I like Matias (accent on i) and Julian.
There are alot of names you can pronounce in english and spanish but I’m not too sure how common they are for you. Some are Aurelio, Gerardo, Arturo, Ruben, Vicente, Samuel, Eleazar. If we ever end up having a boy we would name him Osiel Adrian. My sister named her son Julian.
Javier, Alejandro, Arturo, Augustine, Basilio.
Love Javier! The name sounds soooo sexy. i know sexy is not what we’re going for when naming our child, but mmmmmmmmm.
Gabriel was my favorite boy name of all, we’re French speaking but live in a very English environment so it worked in both languages.
I was crushed wheb DH vetoed it because he did’t like Gabe, Gab or any other short nickname for it.
