I firmly believe that a name helps define the personality of people so: Karla is name and ex's suggestion, Montserrat I got it from a tv star whose personality I love.
Cesar is ex's first name and his suggestion and Eduardo is my best friend's middle name and he is one of the most amazing guys Ive ever known, very sweet and a total gentleman.
Hector is a tv host's name who is very funny and nice, and Osvaldo was ex's idea, he got it from ds1 God father who is a very nice guy, a great father, and has an overall great personality.
I have to add that ex's suggestions were the second name he gave me after turning down his dumb first ideas down, he gave me:
Dd: America (his favorite soccer team)
Ds1: Rominho (a brazilian soccer player)
Ds2: Lex (from smallville)
Take in consideration that we are Mexican and those names sounded ridiculous with his last name lol

All 3 of my kids' names, both first and middle, have family ties.

My daughter's name is Evannoah Cecilia. I've always liked boy names for girls and I loved the names Evan and Noah. I couldn't decide between them so I put them together, and it turned out to be a very feminine name! Cecilia was my hubby's grandmother's name.

Dh brought home Hailey and it just fit. Her middle name is Elizabeth, in my mind for elizabeth bennett LOL - I read a ton of jane austen while pregnant. DH let me do it because my cousin's name is elizabeth.

dd2 was very difficult. We were thinking Lenore, which was his great grandmother's name, and we kept saying "Eleanor". As soon as I found out my mom's middle name was Avington I loved it. I originally wanted to call her avington and then "avi" for short, but dh was like "NO WAY!" We threw around about 100 names but none of them were "IT".Then finally, two days before she was born, DH said, "Eleanor Avington" and it was like Eureka!. We like to have one family name
