It is quite common in Mexico and it does sound pretty in Spanish, but I have to agree with everyone that it doesn't sound so good in English.
Marisol - ok
Xochitl (He LOVES it, but I don't know if I'd be up for it as a first name) - I love this, but it would probably be difficult in the US
Araceli - I like it a lot; it's...
Well, it sounds nice in English, but as a Spanish speaker, it would remind me (even though it's not quite the same) of zorra, which means fox but which applied to a woman means slut, always (not...

Thea - Love it in English but kind of sounds like tia en Spanish or rhymes with atea, depending on how you pronounce it.
Nancy - dated
Luisa - I didn't used to like it, sounded old fashioned, but...
Just out of curiosity, what is the right pronunciation for Zephyra -
Zef ear uh
Zef eye ruh
Ze fur uh
I also think it looks a lot like luxury.

I really like the name Artemis, and I've also heard Artemisia and, here in Mexico, Artemisa.
Just wondering what your thought are on these names....

Zephyrine - a lot of people like it here, but in "real" life everyone hates it. So sad. And Thelonious for a boy.
I have to add my support for Agatha, such a great name!
Not sure about Annella, but Anel (pron. Ah nell) is not so uncommon where I live.
I like blade's suggestion of Evanell, so pretty.
I think Genevieve Esmee is great! It also doesn't seem strange to me - although I only know one person who is called Esme - though her full name is Esmeralda.
I just thought of Anabelle, Maribel, and Elia (Elle ee ah).
I really like Elowen, Eliana, and Elia.
Could be Elsa.
Or anything that ends in elle - Giselle, Arielle, Brielle, Marcelle

Some in Spanish:
Lluvia (pronounced yu vee a)
In Spanish, Elia (no s) is a girl's name. It is pronounced ELLE ee ah.
Well, it seems from what I've read here that many people don't/wouldn't name their child like someone they know.
In my family though there are a lot of repeated names and no one thinks twice...
Just thought of Giselle.
Elia (pronunced Elle ee ah)

It is from 2009. I didn't notice that! Lol

Yes, I realize Etienne is a boys name. I just meant the sound was similar. Sorry I wasn't clear.

You say that you have found your perfect name. However, I agree with a previous poster that if you keep asking for opinions it is probably because you are unsure of the name. You should figure out...
