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?)
-Emma (too common?)
-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???

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!
