I named my son 27 years ago when he was born and I called him "Michael-Lionel". I am French, so it sounds like "Mee-ca-elle- Lee-on-nelle". The name means "Who is close unto God, with the strength of a lion". Meaning meant a lot to me (and at the time I had a crush on Lionel Richie, lol!)

He also has a secret name, that only he and I know. According to Gypsy tradition (his father was Hungarian/Gypsy), I whispered it in his ear when he was born, so no one could own his spirit or rule him but him.

If I had ever had a girl, I would have called her "Elysee" - pronounced "Elle-ee-zay" in French. That's it! lol!

You can use Isaac no problem in Spanish. Or Aaron. I like Adan, too.
I also like Soledad and Celeste. In the not so great in Spanish category is Vivienne.
I just realized my FIL's name is Victor Manuel

I also like Giuseppe or Paolo for a boy and Russian names for girls... Natasha, Anastasia, Karina, etc.

I like pronounceable names that aren't too common. Before I ever name a kid, I'll do a lot of research to make sure the name hasn't had a surge of popularity. I love Ava for a girl, but it's gotten super popular. Oh well. I done understand all the moms of a Hailey, Madison, Emma, or Olivia who seem surprised when their daughter is one of 4 in the class with the same name. All if would have taken is a quick google search! I guess my point is that I don't think names can be picked in a vacuum.

For girls right now I like Rae, Mae, Raina, Sky, and Skyla.
For boys I like Mason and Bennett.

I like the idea of giving my child a family name of some sort, or at least something that has sentimental value. My great-grandmother's name was Josephine, which I think is a lovely, timeless name. I'd be good with naming my daughter that. Plus, it's got lots of nickname possibilities, which is a nice option. A few others I like:

Elena/Lena
Sylvie
Caroline

I once met as woman named Marie-Eve (pronounced the French way), which I've always thought was a nice name.

Boys names are no fun, so I don't think about them very often. But someone I know just named their son Oliver... I love that name! So classy!

Its funny BC the names I so thoughtfully choose go out the window at about 8 months pregnant.

I wanted - the first time:
Sophia
I ended up choosing Bailey.

The second:
Nola
Samantha
I ended up choosing Bella.

If either were a boy it was going to be Benjamin.

Now I like:

Georgia
Abigail

Jackson
Jameson
