  • No offense: Why are you so engulfed in proving that your kids are spanish? And how do you know what they are going to look like? You can find a great selection of names of you Google: Spanish baby names. My friend had a son by a mexican guy and named him Nicholas Tres Dias, just beause she liked the sound of it. Tres Dias means 3 days. So be sure to do research on the meanings so your babies won't be scarred for life like poor lil Nicholas. Good Luck.

  • It depends. What kind of "Spanish" is he? Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican? There are some generic Latin names like Jose, Juan, Pablo, Maria, etc, but you can find more specific names influenced by the unique culture each of these ethnicities brings. Personally, I am Chicana and wanted to give my babies Aztec names, but my husband wouldn't go for it. Also, you have to think of what the name translates into in English (Andres = Andrew, Matteo = Matthew, Josue = Joshua) and how it would be pronounced by non-spanish speaking people. Think about how many years he'll have to spend correcting teachers and friends if you give him/her a name that's hard to pronounce. That being said, I love the names Andres, Julio, Ceasar and Marcos. For girls I like the names Giselle and Aracielly.
