Incredible to see this at #125. I can see this going to the top 100 soon and even joining the ranks of Isabella in multicultural use.

I am not sure either. I like this name because of the meaning of 'listener.'

Latinalinguist Says:


The Spanish pronunciation is 'H" and the Portuguese pronunciation is "SH".

Wait, this says the meaning is uncertain, but that Jimena is a variation and Jimena's name page says it means listener. . . I'm not sure how that works.

Pretty name... I think it would be nice to pronounce the X as "sh" sound instead of "h" sound, though. It's prettier-sounding that way.
