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.

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. :)

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.
