    Hispanic/English Boy Namesq

    Would these boys names work well in an English and Spanish speaking household?

    My side is English and no one in my family speaks Spanish. His side is Hispanic and are bilingual. Last name is Hispanic, 4 letters long beginning with a D and ending with a Z.

    Here’s what we like so far:

    Ezekiel
    Emilio nn Milo or Leo (Milo prounounced like Me-lo?)
    Luca or Luke
    Asa
    Kai
    August

    I’m looking for something that could be pronounced both in English and Spanish. What do you think of family names in the middle name spot?

    Dominic
    Domingo
    Gabriel
    Aldo
    Antonio
    David
    Leo
    Marcus or Marco
    Nicolas/Nico
    Rafael
    Samuel
    Victor
    Sebastian

    Hey there, I commented on your Girls Forum thread so I figured I'd comment on this one too!

    Ezekiel - This one's an intense choice, but it would probably work for a bilingual home.

    Emilio - I LOVE Emilio!! Such an underrated name, it would be on my own list if my partner approved. Perfect for both languages! Both nickname options are solid too.

    Luca or Luke - I actually think both of these would work fine! Luke is so recognizable that most people around the world can probably pronounce it fine.

    Asa - I'm not personally wild about this one, and I think it might create some pronunciation confusion.

    Kai - This one is fine for a bilingual home I think.

    August - This one doesn't feel very bilingual to me, but it is a nice name.


    My favorite for you is obviously Emilio . Second choice would be Luca/Luke.


    I agree with @mayahuel's suggestions. I would also add:

    Silvio
    Julian (although this would end up pronounced as "hoo-lee-ahn")
    Sebastian
    Adrian
    Eliseo
    Matteo
    Diego
    Elio
    Santiago
