    Hispanic type names

    My first post, so Hello!

    I'm 39 weeks pregnant, and still have no idea what to call our boy! Assuming of course that it will be a boy and the sonographer didn't make a mistake...!

    Anyway - looking for some inspiration for names that work well in English and Spanish. OH is quite taken by the name Felix Nathaniel, and I like the idea of Gabriel as a first name - although I'm well aware it might get shortened to Gay in the playground (character building, no?). We also have Luca on the list, and Caspar. But I don't know!

    Does anyone have any other ideas???

    thanks!

    How are you pronouncing Gabriel? I prefer the lovely gah- beginning, which shouldn't get shortened to Gay. I wouldn't purposely give a child a teasable name to build character, personally.

    I like Felix Nathaniel or Luca Gabriel.

    I know quite a few elementary aged Gabriels, I've never heard any of them shortened to 'Gay' most go by Gabe. That being said personally I prefer Caspar and Luca I think they're both very handsome!

    I really like the nickname Gabi for Gabriel... and honestly, I know guys named Gaylen who've survived, and my aunt's name is Gaye so I don't think it'd the end of the world to have 'gay in a name.
    I love Caspar myself! Felix Nathaniel is great, too.
