Boy name Requested for unique family name grouping that’s acceptable in English and Spanish!

Hello all,
Need assistance quickly! I’m due in 8 weeks and my husband and I are struggling to find a name for our first son. Below are the bullet points of our naming experience. Thank you everyone in advance for your input!!

-(First name missing) middle and last name are below.
____________ [name_m]Joaquin[/name_m] Nunez-Eberhard

-Middle name is a family name and is set in stone, an ode to my deceased father-in-law. Also my husband’s middle name.

-It must be acceptable in [name_f]English[/name_f] and Spanish.

-My husband is Dominican from Spanish decent and I’m from the Midwest (Indiana) of [name_m]German[/name_m] decent.

-we are a religious family, [name_u]Christian[/name_u], and my husband would like our son’s name to have strong meaning- nothing made up. He’s adamant that names should have solid, noble roots.

-We would like the name to fit with our family grouping. Full of meaning and authoritative with presence. Below are the first and middle names of each person.

[name_m]Ignacio[/name_m] [name_m]Joaquin[/name_m] (dad)
[name_u]Valen[/name_u] [name_u]Amaris[/name_u] (mom)
Viani Bahari (oldest sis)
Vivy [name_f]Araceli[/name_f] (middle sis)
_____ [name_m]Joaquin[/name_m] (little bro) -still nameless

-I come from a family of all V names, so we aren’t opposed to a V name for a boy should it fit with the grouping. Only request is both families must be able to pronounce it :joy:

Lastly below are a few names that have remained on our list:

-Elias
-Henry
-Vander
-Lael

Thank you all in advance for your insight and suggestions!!!

I like [name_u]Elias[/name_u] best from your list I think it works best in both [name_f]English[/name_f] and Spanish.

[name_m]Victor[/name_m] or [name_m]Viktor[/name_m] would work very well too.

I think a name with a V in it, even if it doesn’t start with V, could work too to maintain the pattern - like [name_u]David[/name_u], Javier/Javi, [name_m]Ivan[/name_m], [name_u]Davi[/name_u], or [name_u]Devin[/name_u].

[name_m]Vincent[/name_m], nickname [name_u]Vinny[/name_u] would work great for your criteria, plus it’s a very handsome name :blush:

[name_f]My[/name_f] first thought was [name_m]Abel[/name_m].

[name_u]Elias[/name_u]. Biblical, works in both [name_f]English[/name_f] and Spanish. Not too common.

From your list I like [name_u]Henry[/name_u] and [name_m]Vander[/name_m] :blush:

[name_f]My[/name_f] favourite ‘V’ boy names:

Right now the most authoritative, strong (and handsome) boy names to me are

[name_m]Alexander[/name_m] (especially with [name_f]British[/name_f] accent :heart_eyes: This as a middle makes everything handsome. [name_m]Simon[/name_m] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m], [name_m]Carl[/name_m] Alexander…)

[name_m]Hi[/name_m]! Congratulations for your baby boy.

After reading your post, I think [name_u]Elias[/name_u] is my favorite options for you. It works well in [name_f]English[/name_f] and Spanish, it has a good meaning and it flows well with [name_m]Joaquin[/name_m].
[name_u]Henry[/name_u] is a lovely name, however, it may not be the easiest name for spanish speakers, I believe. [name_u]Henry[/name_u] [name_m]Joaquin[/name_m] is a nice combo, but not my favorite.
[name_m]Vader[/name_m] complements your family’s theme but doesn’t have a strong meaning.
[name_f]My[/name_f] first suggestion for you is [name_m]Vinicius[/name_m]!
