    Ideas to expand this list?

    My man and I are starting to talk much more seriously about names, and I'd like to bring a few more to the table to mull over. The only one we've discussed already was Theodora (nn. Thea), which he was pleasantly surprised by and seems really into. But before I present my other top 3-4 choices and have them all struck down, I'd like a couple more ideas!

    A little background, I'm half Spanish and half Italian, he's half Colombian and half Italian, so while we both speak English with each other it's important that the names work in a more Spanish pronunciation, for the sake of our immediate family with whom we speak in Spanish/Italian. Essentially, I need Latin or Latinized-Greek names as much as possible.

    Without further ado, the list of names I'd use today if I had to is:
    - Theodora
    - Minerva
    - Matteo
    - Cassio (Prefer Cassius but Cassio works better for us)

    It's ok if it's a name like Theodora which would be slightly tweaked in Spanish to Teodora, but I can't have super dramatic changes from one language to the other. Other faves, usable or not, are in my sig to give you guys more of an idea of my style I guess.

    Looking forward to suggestions! Thank you so much in advance.

    I like to think that most of my signature have that “similar in English and Spanish (and German)” thing...

    How about Ofelia, Viola, Paloma, Morgana, Matilda, Hestia, Eleonora, Eloise, Ines for girls and...
    Hector, Anton, Gideon, Tristan, Sebastian, Felix, Cornelius, Augustus for a boy?
    ...if my husbands has no vote, then....
    Endora & Lorelei / Dexter & Gideon
    ...we are newlyweds and not trying...yet...
