34 weeks pregnant and undecided on name! Help!
Hi everyone! I'm 34 weeks pregnant with a baby girl.
The name I thought we had decided on was * Evelyn Rose* (Eva for short) pronounced Eh-vuh..
I'm suddenly having second thoughts? I'm not sure if this is the perfect name for her. I am of mixed European descent and my husband is hispanic- So she will be 1/2 hispanic. We speak spanish at home, and I would prefer a name that is pronounced beautifully and easily in spanish.
I'm looking for a name that is gentle, feminine, sweet, soft, classy?
*Isabel was another top name of mine for awhile... Just not sure if it's too popular?
Could anyone suggest names or give me your thoughts?

I think Evelyn Rose is lovely, but the middle name Rose is overdone. You could keep Evelyn and find a sweet Hispanic middle name. I'm not Spanish, so I'm not sure which names translate well in Spanish. Some middle name suggestions...

I had a classmate in high school who was Hispanic and named Evelyn. It was the first time I'd ever heard the name used in real life. And both Eva and Evelina are accepted names in Spanish, so I definitely don't think that culture's an issue with that name. I do like the suggestion of a more Spanish name in the middle though. Evelyn Rose is beautiful, but Rose is becoming like Marie or Anne-- it's everyone's middle name now.
How about these for Spanish middle names?
Lili or Liliana
Rosana (continuing on your theme…)
I tried to pick Spanish names that would be interesting (without resorting to Maria or Rosa), and that maybe would continue the flower/nature theme from Rose.- current loves -
Harriet - Flora - Violet - Clementine - Matilda - Wilhelmina - Josephine - Cordelia
Milo - Frederick - Dashiell - Gus - Atticus - Felix - Theo - Harrison - Jack
