My DH (Dutch) actually, in all seriousness, suggested both Balthazar and Gunderanus .. . no, i repeat, he was not joking . . . .
Just for clarity - in Dh's family, the men usually go by the English version of their name when English is being spoken, and the Spanish version when Spanish is. So my husband, Adam, becomes Adan. There are several Ramons who also go by Ray-mon (sounds a lot like Raymond). Is that something you're looking for?
I'm having the same problemo...my DP is Mexican and i'm from PA. I'm also due in Sept...lol and dont know what the sex is. I've tried to get a name out of DP..but everything i come up with he doesnt like. I really want a bible name that can be pronounced in spanish and english. Our sons name is Isaiah in english and in spanish it is Isaias. His family loves his name. I googled spanish english names and found this great site that lists a ton of names in spanish..her are a few i like:
Natanael..i like Natanael Reyes as as first and middle name...both are spelled in spanish..english would be Nathaniel
My favorite is:Nubia Sol...meaning golden sun
Or Lily Sol
I think i may go for all out spanish name and skip the english part of it.
Oh yea, the whole thing is hysterical. We did not go through this AT ALL with dd1. I used to scoff at people who needed help finding a name :
DH has also come up with these: "Atahualpa Lazarus" and "Adolf Hernan" — that's when I just can't take him seriously...
Esteban and Adan are probably trickier for non-Spanish-speakers that you might think....Maybe this doesn't matter too much for you, but we decided we didn't want to have any more issues w/ pronunciation when we got pregnant with a boy *again*!
Our short list for DS2 included Gabriel, Diego and Elias.
