    Names that sound great in English and Spanish?

    If anyone would love to participate.

    My future child will be Afro-Mexican (American) and I would love to devour a list of names that sound great in both English in Spanish. We won't be TTC until March, so I have some time to stew in names. The number one name that the father loves is Juliana because it is a combination of our names (Julio & Alana), plus it sounds delightful in both the English and Spanish language.

    Any similar names you fancy that can be pronounced nicely in both languages?

    Cecilia
    Clara
    Carolina
    Victoria
    Olivia
    Nina
    Eleonora
    Romina
    Laura
    Cristina
    Regina
    Claudia
    Adriana
    Mariel/Mariela
    Antonia
    Amanda
    Anna
    Annalisa/Anna Lisa
    Aurora
    Camila
    Diana
    Gabriela
    Marcela
    Mariana
    Maria
    Martina
    Monica
    Paola/Paula/Paulina (really popular in Mexico)
    Daniela
    Valentina
    Vivian/Vivienne/Vivianne

    As for boys:

    Adam
    David (this one, too)
    Roman
    Roberto

    I wish I could suggest more boys' names but I only have daughters!

    Let me add: Julia is brilliant in English and Spanish and Juliana is simply lovely.

    All lovely suggestions. YBP: I really love the older female names! We are also considering Delores for a girl, after my grandmother. I suppose the proper spelling in Spanish would be Dolores, but I haven't been able to wrap my head around that D-O spelling.
