being that Isabella is more popular with non-Hispanic girls than Hispanic ones, I'm sure a baby Perla would be just fine too.

Well Perla is also "pearl" in Italian. So it's not exclusively Spanish. Maybe if you spelt it Pearla it wouldn't seem so.

Skittlewiddles Says:


Can this name be used on a child who is not Hispanic? This is such a beautiful name but I wonder if others will expect her to be Spanish when her heritage simply isn't. This question also spans out to other Latin or Greek names that are more often given to one culture than other.
