    Red face Names that work in English and Spanish?

    I have quite a long list of names that I like and have yet to run by DH. I was hoping to get an outside opinion before proceeding with suggesting them. I'd hate to burn him out so early into the process!

    My family members all speak English and his family members mostly speak Spanish. Finding a happy medium is very important to us. We don't want anyone to feel like this child is separate from them culturally, if that makes sense.

    What do you think of these names for a child growing up in a bilingual household in a Spanish speaking country? Do you have any suggestions of amazing names I might have missed?
