    More Beautiful Names for a Bilingual Baby?

    Hello! I'm looking for suggestions for girls' names that you think are:

    1. Beautiful pronounced in both Spanish and English (even if it's not typically considered a Spanish name)
    2. Can be shortened to a Spanish nickname
    3. Are not popular or very common (unless you think it's too good to pass up!)
    4. Similar to the ones listed below that I already greatly admire!

    Anastasia (I like nn Nai, Ania, or Ani pronounced with a short o sound, not short a like in Annie)
    Anatalia (Talia)
    Anelisa (Ani/Nelia. Going for a bilingual Annelise. Eh?)
    Adelina (?)
    Alessandra (Alessa/Alessia)
    Catalia (Talia)
    Catalina (Talia)
    Celestia (?)
    Celestina (?)
    Evelia (Eila?)
    Liliosa (Lilia)
    Milena (Mila)
    Rosalia (don't like Rosa)
    Rosalina (again, don't like Rosa)
    Soraya (Sora? Does thatE sound too much like "zorra?" Does it matter?)
    Eliora (Eila?)
    Elula (Lulu/Lula. Maybe this is silly since Elula is already so short. Lu?)
    Carlotta (Lola)
    Seraphina (Sera?)

    Any feedback on these names would be great as well.

    I'm also interested in any unusual/more unique Spanish nicknames and the names they stem from. I plan to use my favorite names that are only easily pronounced in English as firsts, and any of these more bilingual options as middles. Signature is English nicknames, not full first names!

    Expecting a boy (first child!) this time around so this is for future reference!

    *Also, they don't have to end in 'a'. Apparently I just prefer the ones that do!

    Beautiful name list! I love names that end in "a" too (as you can see from my signature, haha). Other suggestions: Eliana, Emilia, Elara, Sienna.

    I LOVE Anastasia, and would use it myself if I wasn't so worried about the "Ana" nickname (bad personal associations). I also really like:

    Alessandra (Sandra?)
    Catalina (I like the nicknames Cat or Lina for this)
    Celestia (Tia?)
    Celestina (Tina)
    Milena (Mila's great)
    Rosalia (Rose or Lia could work as nicknames)
    Soraya (Sora's great)
    Eliora (Eila works)
    Seraphina (Sera's great)

    You seem to like names that end in 'a'. My daughter's name seems to travel well among English and Spanish speakers, and is not very common:


    variations are Talia or Athalia.

    Love my Thalia WaiChi
