Arabic Boy's Names That work in English... and in German??
I am faaaaar from expecting, but my eventual kids will need names that are aren't a headache to pronounce in English, German, or Arabic. In English, I love Avery, Everest, Alexander, Alan, Caspian, etc. but most of them would not work in both languages without shifting to a totally different pronunciation. Thoughts?

Not sure whether any of these would work...

There are a lot of Biblical names that would work in Arabic, English, and German. Aaron, Adam, Benjamin, David, Abraham, Elijah, etc... I don't think you're going to find a name that's pronounced the same in all three languages though. English and German are similar in some ways, but Arabic is a completely unrelated language.Samuel / Joseph / Ezra / James / Edward
Helen / Georgia / Jane / Alice / Frances
