Which name route to go?

So, I have two characters in my head right now; a brother and sister. Easy enough, right?

My problem is that I can’t think of names for them that match their undecided heritage. They’re mixed-race (Colombian from dad and American/Jewish from mom). I cam’t decide whether to give them traditionally Latino names, or go the Hebrew route. Maybe one of those racially flexible names (i.e. [name]Ryan[/name], [name]Max[/name], [name]Allie[/name], [name]Sara[/name]/h). Thoughts? It’s been rattling my brain for weeks!


You can do both! Being both Jewish, American, and Argentine, this is familiar ground to me. :lol:

For boys:
[name]Rafael[/name] (or the English version, [name]Raphael[/name])
(All -el names are the same, basically, in all languages.)
[name]Aaron[/name] (said ah-[name]RON[/name])
[name]Adan[/name] (version of [name]Adam[/name] – ah-DAHN)
[name]Simon[/name] (see-MON)
[name]Benjamin[/name] (ben-hah-meen)
[name]Jaime[/name] (hahy-meh)
[name]Moises[/name] (version of [name]Moses[/name])

For girls:
[name]Abigail[/name] (commonly used in Spanish – ah-bee-gah-eel)
[name]Micaela[/name] (a feminine version of [name]Michael[/name] for girls; basically [name]Michaela[/name], but no H; said mee-cah-EH-la)

That’s not completely all of them, but I hope that helps!
