What do you think of...?

[name_f]Isabel[/name_f] [name_f]Eva[/name_f]? [name_f]Do[/name_f] you like them together? [name_f]Do[/name_f] they flow well? Is is weird to use two Spanish names if we are not Hispanic?

I think it flows well. However, I think it is odd to have two Spanish names without Spanish heritage.

I don’t think it’s strange especially when these Spanish names are very well-used outside of Latin countries/cultures. I understand that they are actually quite high on the ranks in the United States.

I like [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] [name_f]Eva[/name_f] quite a lot. Personally, though, I see it more as international than Spanish–yes, [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] is the Spanish spelling of [name_f]Isabelle[/name_f]/[name_f]Isabel[/name_f]/[name_f]Isobel[/name_f], but it’s also generally seen as the most classic, and honestly, name a country in Europe or the Americas or even Australia/[name_m]New[/name_m] Zealand/etc. where [name_f]Eva[/name_f] isn’t used with some frequency? I see it as more classic than anything, and I definitely like it!

[name_f]Isabel[/name_f]'s (well, [name_f]Isabelle[/name_f]) is my top choice for a girl (and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] is on my list as well!), though, so I’m definitely in favor. :slight_smile:

My issue with [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] [name_f]Eva[/name_f] is that when I say it the names run into each other and it ends up sounding like one name ‘Isabeleva’ but you might not find that an issue?!

Both are nice names that are pretty popular in the UK so I don’t think it’s an issue that you would have two Spanish names together.

I don’t think [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] & [name_f]Eva[/name_f] are exclusively Spanish, so it doesn’t strike me as odd, especially if you’re pronouncing them in English.
I think they’re nice together! Very solid.

I don’t think it’s an issue that they are both Spanish. [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] is so multi-national - it’s a top name in the USA and [name_f]Canada[/name_f] (and idk about other places), and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] is rising in popularity. I don’t think it’s an issue.

I agree with shelfieswithherownwings - [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] [name_f]Eva[/name_f] kind of runs together sounding like Isabeleva.

I wouldn’t think “Spanish!” when I see [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] [name_f]Eva[/name_f]. That would be reserved for a more Spanish spelling of the name, a la [name_f]Isobel[/name_f].

Both are popular and pretty. It isn’t unusual at all.

I wouldn’t recognize them as Spanish names. Spanish names to me are those that are mostly used in Spanish-speaking countries or communities, [name_f]Isabel[/name_f] and [name_f]Eva[/name_f] are both very international names.

[name_f]Isabelle[/name_f] is the [name_m]French[/name_m] version. You could spell it that way.

[name_f]Isabel[/name_f] [name_f]Eva[/name_f] is gorgeous. It’s a combination I haven’t heard before! :slight_smile:
