Hispanic type names
My first post, so Hello!
I'm 39 weeks pregnant, and still have no idea what to call our boy! Assuming of course that it will be a boy and the sonographer didn't make a mistake...!
Anyway - looking for some inspiration for names that work well in English and Spanish. OH is quite taken by the name Felix Nathaniel, and I like the idea of Gabriel as a first name - although I'm well aware it might get shortened to Gay in the playground (character building, no?). We also have Luca on the list, and Caspar. But I don't know!
Does anyone have any other ideas???
How are you pronouncing Gabriel? I prefer the lovely gah- beginning, which shouldn't get shortened to Gay. I wouldn't purposely give a child a teasable name to build character, personally.
I like Felix Nathaniel or Luca Gabriel.
I love Mateo, augustin and Hugo.
I know quite a few elementary aged Gabriels, I've never heard any of them shortened to 'Gay' most go by Gabe. That being said personally I prefer Caspar and Luca I think they're both very handsome!
I really like the nickname Gabi for Gabriel... and honestly, I know guys named Gaylen who've survived, and my aunt's name is Gaye so I don't think it'd the end of the world to have 'gay in a name.
I love Caspar myself! Felix Nathaniel is great, too.
Feliciano (this is pretty dated, but I like it anyway)
Some of these names have an accent thing like Álvaro, Jerónimo and a few others but I didn't use them cause I'm not sure if you'll want them to be THAT hispanic
My favorites are Sebastian and Joaquin (not sure of spelling on that one, but pronounced Wah-keen, as in the actor)
