I like the previous suggestions of Alvaro, Benicio, Ignacio, (we have an Ignacio - nice to see his name suggested!), Joaquin, Leandro, Octavio and Valentin.
From your current list, I really like Rosa or Vera with Marco and Luca.
Did anyone say Claudia? I also like Flavia and Pia.
Eloisa is the Spanish, Italian and Portuguese version of Eloise ... so it is like comparing Adele and Adela, Natalie and Natalia, Estelle and Estela, etc. Many of these Spanish/Italian names have...

Pablo is very handsome. I prefer Marco or Marcos to Mario, and Marius is also nice as others have suggested.

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).
