    Question Help with name for my daughter and his sister

    I have followed this site forever and this is my first post. I need help...

    I have a son named Matteo Jose, and I need a name for his upcoming sister.

    Btw, I am the dad most posts here are by mothers, but in my house I am the one into names and its importance.. long story...

    A bit of background. My last name is Besteiros. 100% Hispanic family, but staying in US forever

    For my son I looked for a name that was not too long (last name is long/complex), can be easily pronounced in Spanish and it was not too common but trending up... The Jose comes from a long line of Jose(sss).

    We have considered the following names (no order):
    -Amelia (too long?)
    -Anna
    -Emma (too common?)
    -Camila
    -Gemma (I did, my wife does not like)
    -Olivia(taken by just born and close cousin Oliver?)


    For middle name is even tougher (I think) since my son already has a middle name with 'meaning' I would think she deserves the same, probably she deserves better, lol. I have from names in the family: Daisy, Araceli, Manuela, Numancia, and Josephine (for obvious reasons). I personally like Josephine, but that might be too much since my son has Jose for MN. Or should I just go with the best sounding MN without meaning, like Anna Lucia???

    Thank you!

    Amelia Araceli, I like the double A! Since it's relatively common, I don't think it's too long.
    or Camila Araceli
    Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
    Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

    Hello
    Out of your list I prefer (by a mile) Camila. I find Amelia and Olivia far too popular and middle of the road. So many Spanish choices sound beautiful to me, I would be tempted to stay close to that heritage with the name choice. I think it is fine to use Josephine as mn. Camila Josephine - lovely!

    I agree with kala_way all the way-- Camila or Amelia (or Amalia?) Araceli sounds fantastic!

    Alma, Amabel, and Amaya could be nice options too.
