Another Spanish girls name that's easy on American ears in Ana. Other than some annoying mispronuciation by Americans it is a beautiful, simple name (IMHO, see sig )

Mama to my beautiful Ana Carolina (2/07), Isabel Cristina (6/10), and #3 on the way in August 2013!

OMG! my dh does the same thing! nixes my ideas then comes up wit the most ridiculous ideas.

This thread is cracking me up! We were in this same position not long ago... (I'm American w/ a very Irish name, DH is Mexican.) We've always had a girl name at the ready--one we both liked that happened to belong to my great-grandma and DH's mother! But, well, boys names were much, much trickier for us!

Anyhow, just wanted to offer this input about a couple names suggested here:

Esteban and Adan are probably trickier for non-Spanish-speakers that you might think. We learned this w/ DS1. 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.

Full-time-working student mama to some sweet spring babies... DS1 (4/05) DS2 (4/08) and now expecting #3 in May 2015 !

Well, my baby is Harlan, so I'm partial to that one.

Well, I'm lucky enough to live in a small northern New Mexico town, where it's fairly common to use the Spanish pronunciation of a name-- although I can see how the difficulty can follow a kid throughout his/her growing up.

Diego is definitely one of my favorites, and it's so easy for English speakers. I really love Adán, too!

Here's a true story from our family: When my dad (first boy) was born, my grandfather INSISTED that they name the boy after him: Emeterio Jr. Tradición, right? Well, my abuela was going to have none of that. She called him Carlos from Day One, and NEVER, EVER, used his "real" name. As far as she was concerned, her boy was Carlos!

So he didn't learn his name until first grade: he wouldn't answer the roll call and his older sister had to come in from the other classroom to explain that yes, indeed, his name was Emeterio, not Carlos.

To this day, his entire family calls him Carlos. There was no stopping abuela when she put her mind to something!

Our 3 boys are Christian Alejandro, Ethan Xavier and Adan Nicolas.
I like both Xavier and Adan because they're good in spanish as well as english.
eta: Christian works for both as well. DH pronounces it the spanish way and I pronounce it the english way.
