We had a name we like for our little boy, but good friends of ours used it recently, so we are trying to move on. Painful, but friendship is more important My husband is [name]German[/name] and I am American, and while we live in Germany now, we can imagine moving to the US in the next 10 years, so the name has to work in both countries. We have a scant few options on the table:
We are both sort of leaning towards [name]Joaquin[/name]/m, but we aren’t sure how popular it is in the US. We also are having a hard time assessing how it would sound with our last name, Preibisch (rhymes with eye-bish). Here in Germany it’s prounounced szho-ah-keen(m). Would the combo be too much of a mouthful? Does it fit? We’d appreciate any feedback on that or the other two names. No middle name yet, but we fortunately have more of a starting point there.
