I voted for [name]Esperanza[/name] (hope) but I love [name]Paloma[/name] too! This is a tricky situation. Personally, I think [name]Natalia[/name] and [name]Eulalia[/name] should have been included despite their original origins. I say this because technically, [name]Catalina[/name] is Spanish but [name]Katherine[/name] is Greek, [name]Ysabel[/name] is a form of the Hebrew [name]Elizabeth[/name] and [name]Elena[/name] is a variant of the Greek [name]Helena[/name]. A slippery slope to tread…

[name]Catalina[/name]! I would’ve voted for [name]Annabella[/name], but I already had voted for that on another one of these polls and I didn’t know if we could vote for the same name (even if they’re on different polls)

I voted [name]Josefina[/name]. I would have voted [name]Annabella[/name], but I believe that’s Italian, not Spanish. [name]Anabela[/name] would have been Spanish?

I voted for [name]Esperanza[/name]. It’s pretty, and I love that it means “hope.”
