    Brazilian/Portuguese boys names

    DH is Brazilian and I'm from the US.

    Anyone have suggestions of boys names that work in Portuguese and English? It seems everyone names their sons the following:

    Daniel
    Benjamin
    Gabriel
    David
    Leonardo
    Mario

    Any other ideas? Our DD is named Maya, to give you an idea of what we went for as far as girls names go.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I think Rafael and Luis may be near the top of the list. The other names are good but we can't use several of them because they are already taken but a cousin or good friends kids.

    There are others. Feel free to PM me if you need any more!
    Hope it was any help.
