My husband is English and I’m from South America.
While it’s probably easier for girl names I find it impossible to think of boys name that would work both in English and in Spanish. (I don’t want the name to sound ethnic / foreign in either languages).

+1 to David. My brother is named David because it works in both languages. My family is American, but he was adopted from Colombia.
Other names: Marco(s), Iago, Alex/Alejandro, Andres, Luis, and Raul

@HisIrishPrincess: ohhh i do like Nicholas, that’s a good one.
Mrs.Argentina i mean any english name / not just british… thank you!
those are all very good names!!!
I love Sebastian but i used to have a dog named sebastian, it’d be weird to name my son and then we’d tell people he was named after a dog 😛

How about Omar? It’s my FI’s name and my super Anglo family has no trouble with it. And I think it’s beautiful when his tios and tias say it too.
