I really like the friend word for January, which is Janvier. It LOOKS a lot like Javier, which I don't like, but it sounds SO pretty. jhan-vee-ay. I also like the way the French pronounce Violet/Violette - vee-oh-let. I think that a LOT of French words are so pretty-sounding and would make wonderful names. <33♂ Ellis Christopher / Asher Estlin / Seth Joshua / Gordon Thomas / Russell Joseph ♂

I did my schooling in French and was always frustrated by not having "améliorer" as a word in English (and then was elated when I discovered "ameliorate" is a thing).
In Spanish, I really like "paisaje." It doesn't roll off the tongue as a name so well.
Like Natália, I think Alma is a gorgeous word-as-name, I love the meaning. I do prefer the sound and feel of Alba, but Alma definitely has a charm due to the "soul" part.
I would use Amparo in a heartbeat. I used to live in the Valencian Community, so I feel a sentimental tie to Amparo; it means "Shelter" in Spanish.
Pastora I love a lot, but I have a weird infatuation with shepherding and transhumance, so that makes sense. I'm hard-pressed to find support in this name, though
Mar- it's so simple and strong
Marjolaine is one I've liked since high school. We had an exchange student come from France and this was her name, and it stuck with me. I'd never use Marjoram in English, but Marjolaine is so pretty to me.
I also love the sound of Ibaia for a girl (which means "a river"), but it isn't used as a name (Ibai for a boy is, though).
Pau- it's just Paul in Catalan for a boy, but on a girl, it means 'Peace'/ is the word for peace in Catalan. It's kind of a political statement on a girl, but it's a great meaning. I can live with it being Paul... because how fun is it to say?!Lucia
