Help me pick a name!

First time mom here! [name_f]My[/name_f] hubby and I are stumped on the baby name…

So far we like [name_u]Miles[/name_u] [name_m]Santiago[/name_m] and [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u]. Our last name rhymes with Vaca which is not the easiest last name to match a name with. We would like either a Spanish origin middle name or first name to honor our heritage.

Any help would be SOOO appreciated!

Hi! I’d go for [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u], an Italian first name but a very beautiful one! Sounds good with something rhyming on Vaca


I like [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u]! [name_u]Miles[/name_u] [name_m]Santiago[/name_m] is nice but the s and s back to back can be a little hard


Mateo and [name_m]Santiago[/name_m] are really popular within the Spanish community at the moment. If you don’t mind that then I would say they’re great picks. I like [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] [name_u]Elias[/name_u] the most.



I actually like [name_u]Miles[/name_u] [name_u]Elias[/name_u] together
I don’t know if [name_m]Emilio[/name_m] is Spanish or Italian but [name_u]Miles[/name_u] [name_m]Emilio[/name_m] is handsome.

Mateo [name_u]Elias[/name_u] sounds far better in Spanish as [name_u]Miles[/name_u] Vaca isn’t exactly my cup of tea compared to [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] Vaca, as a Spanish speaker myself I feel it’s better to have a Spanish first name, since it flows better and nicer! I like [name_m]Matias[/name_m] as a alternative for [name_u]Elias[/name_u]! But the MM combo might not be your cup of tea so maybe [name_m]Felix[/name_m] [name_m]Matias[/name_m] (another popular short name); Spanish name combos for middle names are

Mateo [name_m]Luis[/name_m]
[name_u]Miles[/name_u] [name_m]Salvador[/name_m]
[name_u]Angel[/name_u] [name_u]Elias[/name_u]
[name_m]Miguel[/name_m] [name_u]Ash[/name_u]

I’m not so confident in these suggestion so if you mind sharing your taste in baby names (right now I’m thinking short popular baby boy names and M Spanish boy names)

I love [name_u]Miles[/name_u] [name_m]Santiago[/name_m]! Both names are nice but this one is so charming to me. Both [name_m]Mateo[/name_m] and [name_u]Miles[/name_u] work well with a last name sounding similar to Vaca, at least I think so.

Similar to [name_u]Miles[/name_u] is [name_m]Nyle[/name_m] and [name_m]Niles[/name_m] which I think would also work really well.


I think both combos are great, but wow, [name_u]Miles[/name_u] [name_m]Santiago[/name_m] is stunning. :heart_eyes:

Hi Eveyone! Thank you for all the feedback- it’s definitely nice to get some feedback on the top 2 names we have pickled out!


Hi, thanks for the feedback! I do like the way a Spanish first name sounds with our last name.

We also like the name [name_u]Levi[/name_u], [name_u]Luca[/name_u], and [name_u]Cameron[/name_u] but we’re having trouble matching them up with anything in combination with our last name.

Miles [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] is a nice name too- but nothing stands out about it.
