    Christiano is certainly swoon worthy. I love it and think you shouldn't hesitate to use it! America is a melting pot, after all. African-Americans don't use JUST African names, Mexican-Americans don't use JUST Mexican names, why should you have to be restricted to names from your own culture?

    I also think of Cristiano Romano, but it is a nice name. And I have said this here before: not all Latinos have dark eyes and skin. My kids are Latino like their blue-eyed father, and they are fair-skinned with light brown hair like me (not Latina).

    Sorry - didn't finish my thought: and my kids have classic Spanish names.

    I also think of Cristiano Ronaldo, haha. That's where I first came across it, but that's not why I love it, and why I would use it. I wonder if most Americans would think I would be naming my son after the footballer, too, if I ever used it?

    I'm also considering some other international Christian variants, like the Romanian Cristian, or the Scandinavian Kristian, although I'm not sure I like either better than Cristiano...

    I think of Cristiano Ronaldo too. I really like Kristian but there is a Scottish Footballer with this name although he goes by Kris.
