Spanish baby names are becoming more popular in the modern US, used both by Spanish parents and those attracted to the culture. In some states, Spanish names make the most popular lists, with variations such as Sofia and Spanish favorites such as Angel and Jesus ranked among the top names for babies. Popular names in Spain include Lucia, Martina, Maria, Sofia, and Paula for girls; Hugo, Daniel, Martin, Pablo, and Alejandro for boys.
Sometimes, the only thing separating a Spanish name from an English name is a slight difference in pronunciation, which means the name can work in both cultures.
