Latin/Spanish boy name advice please!

My husband and I are struggling with naming our boy on the way. We have a daughter named [name]Lucia[/name] [name]Paloma[/name] (pronounced Loo-sha). Any advice is greatly appreciated!

just a few ideas

I love [name]Lucia[/name] [name]Paloma[/name]!

[name]Mateo[/name] (I love [name]Mateo[/name]!)

Good luck! :slight_smile:

[name]Diego[/name], [name]Mateo[/name] and [name]Cruz[/name] are three of my favorites.


[name]Just[/name] a question, why do you pronounce [name]Lucia[/name], Loo-sha? In Spanish it would be Loo-si-ah (or Loo-thi-ah in Spain). With the [name]Paloma[/name] next to it, it looks like it should be pronounced the Spanish way.

Wow…there are some really great suggestions here and thanks for the input!

I really love the name [name]Dante[/name], but unfortunately my husband does not.

As for the question regarding my daughter’s name, My husband and I simply loved the pronunciation we chose, more than the Spanish or Italian pronunciation.


I also love [name]Mateo[/name]/[name]Matteo[/name]!

If you like unusual names, you might like Suero, a male Spanish medieval name.

[name]Lucia[/name] [name]Paloma[/name] (love that name!) and…

[name]Francisco[/name] nn [name]Cisco[/name]
[name]Lorenzo[/name] nn [name]Enzo[/name]
[name]Teodor[/name] nn [name]Teo[/name]

I don’t know which of these names are cool. I just happen to love them. I bet [name]Rio[/name] is pretty cool.
