I like a lot of your list. My husband is Hispanic and our children have Spanish names that have one pronunciation in English and Spanish, so I have thought about these kinds of names a lot.
Leandro - We considered this for one of our kids. My family (non-Spanish speakers) felt the le-an sounded feminine, a la Leanne, but I would think they would say the same for Leander. I think this name is very handsome.
Marcelo - I suggested this name at one point, but for my husband this is a very dated name, similar to suggesting Todd or Kurt for a baby today, so it was nixed.
Emmanuel - In Spanish you would spell it with one m. Manuel is also a nice, traditional name. Both give the cute nn Manu.
Elian - As others have said, I can only think of Elian González.
Marco - I like this name a lot and it is very international.
Mateo - This is also nice, as is Matías.
Others you might like are Lisandro, Mariano, Maximo, Eliseo, Tadeo, Pedro, or Tomás. I like the previous suggestions of Javier, Joaquin, Rafael and Alejandro. And I tried to suggest Pascual for our first baby - I think it is so cute - but my husband thought I was nuts!
