    I ADORE the name Eli. I think it stands also just fine, and it always sounds like a boy's name to me. Of course, if you are really concerned, there are many Eli- boys names you could use (Elijah,...

    I've got to say, I'm glad you guys have my back on Xochitl! I do like the sound but it would just be a nightmare anywhere but Mexico. I could roll with it in the middle though. I guess I'd have to...

    Good point, rosamonte! I don't think appearance makes as much of a difference with the Latin names -- plus they are reasonably familiar names with the general American population. Japanese is a...

    That is a really good point, kala -- something very Mexican or very Japanese is sure to turn many more heads. And we definitely want something that English speakers will be able to pronounce and...
