Spanish Girl names
I'm not pregnant and I don't have children but I do have an obsession with baby names and I have always had a thing for spanish sounding names since I have hispanic heritage yet I have always thought about the problems choosing one of these names could cause because of pronounciation and not being able to find the right middle name aswell as the fact that it might not flow with my childrens' last name
Here is a list of my favorite names that I would want to use and I'm open to any combinations any of you can make and I would love to hear what you think of them. Thanks
Ximena - interesting, but have bad associations (tv series)
Carlota - car and lotto, dislike
Frida - dislike
Julieta - ok, but find h sound annoying
Viviana - lovely
Florencia - OK
Constanza - prefer Constance, but OK
Luisa - dislike both Louisa/Louise and it's variant
Tatiana - my neighbor name, OK
Mia - boring, but nice
Renata - dated in my country, find ti unappealing
Victoria - OK, nice
Azul - lovely
Fernanda - masculine
Camila - nice
Lua - is this misspelling? Lua is ugly
So... Ximena Azul
What about Elena, Silvia, Lucia...
Thank you so much for taking your time to reply :) well silvia is my mother's name and i do not like it at all, and elena just makes me think of a really old person but lucia sounds like quite a nice option and lua is not misspelled, it means moon in portuguese and it is the name of a roman goddess and I liked it cause luna is completely out of the question cause it is so popular
Ximena- It isn't my favourite… the X confuses me because I want to pronounce it with an SH or a CH.
Carlota- Love it! It's pretty popular in Spain. I think it's nice!
Frida- I like this. I'm not sure if it's too much of an artsy statement, but it's cool. It's familiar without being too weird.
Julieta- Super pretty! I feel like these are one of those names you need to be flexible with the pronunciation because people will pronounce it differently from you, no matter which pronunciation you pick. It's nice in English and Spanish :)
Viviana- Eeh, I've never really liked it. I'm not an -ana- person...
Florencia- Meh, it's fine, but not one I've ever really liked. I'm not really a place name person. I prefer Flora or Flor.
Constanza- It's all right. I actually know someone named Concetta, and I think that's fantastic, but Constanza, while similar, doesn't do anything for me.
Luisa- It seems super dated to me. I don't mind it, I know an Ana Luisa and she's 19, but Luisa on its own seems like a middle-aged name.
Tatiana- It's all right, it really doesn't strike me as being Spanish, though.
Mia- I think this is weird in Spanish, honestly.
Renata- I think I met a Renata last year, but I forget where, haha. It's all right. It also seems like an old lady name, though, but in a way that it was uncommon enough to be hip now.
Victoria- super stable.
Azul- Errrrr, I do not like this at all.
Fernanda- I like it! It's not really my style, but I like it!
Camila- Nice, also stable.
Lua- I'm not liking Lua at all, sorry.
My opinion may not be that valuable because I don't know what's hip in the Spanish-speaking world, but I think you have some fabulous names. My favorites:
Ximena- Who can resist an X name? This one's sassy and sweet.
Carlota- This name's like a red flower behind the ear.
Frida- Frida Kahlo. Yes please. This name is Cool with a capital C.
Constanza- A bit old-ladyish, in a good way. Strong and quiet.
Luisa- The only variation of Louise that I truly love. Luisa sneaks up on you. Sexy but not overtly so.
Victoria- I don't think of this as particularly Spanish, but it's beautiful, especially with the nickname Vita.
Azul- This is like a sparkling blue sea. But I must admit, a little voice in my head said, "There is no Dana, only ZUL!"
Camila- Love this with one L. So ladylike, but also strong because of the connection to the incredible Saint Camilla.
Lua- I dislike many Lu-names- Lulu, Lula, etc. But Lua is special. It's so so soft and simple that it seems almost edgy to me. Reminds me of the beautiful Caetano Veloso song "Lua Lua Lua" (not sure if that's the real title, but look it up if you've never heard it.)
Ximena - It looks cool and if I'm pronouncing it right, has a cool sound as well.
Carlota - I really like this, but prefer the Carlotta spelling.
Frida - Not my style and I don't really like the way it looks either.
Julieta - So frilly and girly! I like the Julietta spelling more, but wow what a name.
Viviana - I'm going to say that I prefer the original Vivian.
Florencia - I think it is a little too over the top for me; Florence is pretty though.
Constanza - Also a bit too over the top for me.
Luisa - I'm not loving the look of it, but I can appreciate the fact that it's a variant of Louise.
Tatiana - Pretty pretty! I like this as a sister to Juliet/Julietta.
Mia - Sweet but just doesn't compare to some of the other names on your list.
Renata - Pretty! I see this on the same level as Saskia- Sassy, fun and full of energy!
Victoria - Nice name, but I'm not seeing the Spanish flair that some of your other names have.
Azul - Not my style; I feel like there's something missing.
Fernanda - I'm neutral on the full name but I like the nickname Fern.
Camila - Cute, but I like the Camilla spelling better (unless you pronounce that differently, I know some berries do!).
Lua - Lua reminds me of the Hawaiian Islands for some reason, perhaps the sound. Very pretty!
My tops are Carlotta, Julietta, and Tatiana. :)
I love Ximena and Julieta. Camila is nice as well.
Other Spanish favorites:
Nuria (the nameberry link to the name gives it a negitive review but I think it's cute)
Best of luck!
Ximena - This is super cool, but might be difficult for many to say in the US
Carlota - I also like this, although I usually see it spelled Carlotta. Not sure if that's an americanized thing. I also like Carlita
Frida - This is great! It seems to me like a Spanish equivalent of the cool "Grandma" names
Julieta - lovely, but in the US people may pronounce it all sorts of ways.
Viviana - very feminine and flowery, I like it!
Florencia - very pretty, but may be a bit of a mouthful. I also might prefer Flor or Flora.
Constanza - this is the only one on the list I don't care for, it seems a bit hard to pronounce to me, sounds a little surname-ish, and lots of harsh sounds.
Luisa - this is very pretty and simple.
Tatiana - I like the name, but it's not as stunning as others on your list. A little boring to me.
Mia - not a big fan. It's popular among lots of different languages, it would get lost where the others stand out.
Renata - I've never heard this before! I don't know if it's dated...I don't love the sound as much as the others, but it's a nice, easy to pronounce name.
Victoria - again, a pretty name, but would get lost in the crowd.
Azul - pretty, but seems a little masculine to me. I'd put it in the middle.
Fernanda - I love this!
Camila - pretty, but like some of the others, doesn't stand out as much.
Lua - I think this is beautiful, and I love the meaning.
Lua, Fernanda, Frida, Carlota, or Ximena are my favorites.
Ximena-- I actually quite like this name, X and all.
Carlota-- eh. It sounds a little "mom on the telenovela" to me.
Frida-- Very cool. Would be sweet on a little girl
Julieta-- I'm not really a fan of this name in any language.
Viviana-- Like this one a lot. Wonderful meaning, cute nn, very girly :)
Florencia-- see Carlota
Constanza-- see Carlota
Tatiana-- I like this one a lot
Mia-- it works in both English and Spanish, but it's like calling your daughter "mine"
Renata-- very cute... very popular in Spanish-speaking countries
Victoria-- another winner. Easy in both English and Spanish
Azul-- there was a character on a novela with this name... that's all I can think of.
Fernanda-- see Carlota
Lua-- I don't like this one, sorry.
Lucia (maybe instead of Luisa)
Xochil (ok, this one would create a host of pronunciation problems, but I love it... had to throw it in there)
