    I feel your pain, I went through this twice and it can be stressful, but once you find that name that works for everybody, it's an awesome feeling!
    It is very stressful, but I think it'll help us to find the perfect name for our child. My thinking with the names above were that many of them are similar to names in English (Adeline, Madalyn, etc.) that I always liked. But that's why I'm asking for opinions!

    If you don't mind me asking, do you have any suggestions for non-grandmother's names?

    I am not Hispanic and speak very little of the language myself (had 6 years of Spanish 7-12 grades but forget most of it); however, I am a teacher in an inner city school with a mostly Hispanic population so I have to interact with students and parents with limited or no English on a daily basis. I think the names that would work best are:

    Sofia
    Priscilla
    Isabel
    Josepha/Josefa
    Estella/Stella
    Fernanda/Fernandina
    Luna
    Mila
    Lourdes

    Have you considered Ramona? It is of Spanish origin but very familiar in the English language as well, but not overly used. I personally think it's beautiful.
    Mama to Nora.

    Current favorites:
    Declan (Dex). Griffin (Finn). Ewan. Graham. August (Gus). Colin. Ian. Wesley (Wes). Cyrus. Leland (Lee). Rufus.

    Gwyneth (Gwen). Elise. Bonnie. Zoe. Edith (Edie). Piper. Ivy. Josephine (Josie). Margot. Carys. Sylvie. Eve. Iris. Esme. Phoebe (Bee). Kaia.
