Or what about Alette? I had never heard of it before, it's was on Appellation Mountain the other day: http://appellationmountain.net/alette-baby-name-day/#more-22298
Belen and Nieves are two other...
It currently means show girl in in Argentina, Chile and Uruguay. My husband is from Argentina - you could google "vedette argentina" or any of the other two Southern Cone countries to see current...
A vedette is a show girl in Latin American Spanish - I can't imagine Vedette or Vidette being used as a girl's name, especially with her sisters' lovely names. See...

I really like Stellan too, and I hadn't made the connection. I know a little Lennon and that name does make me think of Lenin, but the pronunciation is much closer. I think the first syllable in...
I think using the nickname Nelly (or Naya) is a great idea. Nelly is a nickname that you also hear within the Hispanic community, and I think it will even give the non-Spanish speaking side of the...
Sorry - didn't finish my thought: and my kids have classic Spanish names.
I also think of Cristiano Romano, but it is a nice name. And I have said this here before: not all Latinos have dark eyes and skin. My kids are Latino like their blue-eyed father, and they are...
I'd go for more of an old-timey cowboy feel for a girl. Emmeline and Willa suggested above are nice.

I am glad you liked Paloma and Violeta!
I know a little Iker here in the States (parents are both from Spain) and I think they do have to say the name a few times to most people. I can see the...
Not necessarily the top names in Spain, where Lucía, Paula, Sofía, Sara, Julia and other 2-3 syllable names are the most popular now.
Or Patricio, the Spanish way.
I really like Noemí, Beatriz, Zara and Ofelia from your list. Here are some more that you might like:
Lagilliana - my kids are Ignacio, Jimena and Flavia (Nacio, Mena and Vivi). I also liked Pilar but my husband (an Argentine) found it too religious, too. It's interesting seeing Amenspanglish's post...

There is also Aida.
I would pick Marita of the two, as I agree with others that the drink connection is too strong. I would suggest Magali (magaLEE), the Provençal version of Marguerite/Margarita, as it reflects more of...

I agree - the Spanish name Matias is pronounced the way you are looking for. I have heard Matthias and Mattias pronounced as ma-TYE-us.
I don't care for the "cilia" - little hairs - connection at the end. I prefer Lucilla or Lucila (lu-SEE-la).
I know a little boy with this name, but it is spelled Ren.
Evangeline is a nice option, or Evelina.
Here's a good indicator of current popularity: http://espanol.babycenter.com/a14500001/nombres-de-beb%C3%A9s-m%C3%A1s-populares-de-m%C3%A9xico-en-2011
I responded to your posting about boys' names. My husband is a native Spanish speaker but he's not from Mexico, so I'm not sure of the current use of these names there.
Florentina - I have never...

With your daughter's name (which is very pretty and stately) I like Marguerite (or Margot). I also like Delphine as a first name (or Delfina) and I wonder if you'd like Theodora more than Dorothea. I...
