Sofia – Long before the Disney cartoon, I very much loved the name because it sounded dainty and sophisticated. The meaning of the name means “wisdom” or to be wise.
Amelia – After watching the French film Amélie, I knew I wanted a similar name that was not exactly Emily, but a derivative, which means “industrious.”
Isabel – In other countries, the other form of the name is Elizabeth. I knew that it was a name given to royalty. In Hebrew, it means someone who is devoted to God.
Alejandra – This name means “great conqueror” and is a beautiful Spanish name for those looking for a feminine version of Alexander.
Natalia – When I watched Natalie Wood in West Side Story, I kept her name in my journal. The Spanish version is even prettier and means “natal day,” or Christmas.
Adriana – I am very familiar with this name, since I have an aunt in Mexico who is almost my age with three boys. The name emits a strong character but it means “one that comes from the sea.”
Eliana – My Chilean grandmother’s name was Eliana. Since she dies more than 15 years ago, I thought it would be great to name one of daughter’s after her. The name means “God has answered.”
Carolina – The name has such a stylish ring to it. No wonder if fits Carolina Herrera well. It means “strong.”
Lucia – There is an amazing character in an opera called Lucia, but while C sound in Italian is “ch,” I knew that in Spanish it would be easier to pronounce. It means “graceful light.”
Marcelo – My father’s brother is Marcelo, which is a derivative of Marcus that is not as popular. I think it should be a name that is used more often for a boy. It is unique and Mars would be a cool nickname.
Gustavo – While my father usually went by Gus, I prefer Gustavo since it is much more professional and sounds what like it means: “royal staff.”
Matías – I think this Spanish version of Matthew sounds a lot more unique. It is shorter and means “gift of God.”
Ian – I would not have gathered it to be a popular Hispanic name, but I have always had this name on my list if we had a boy. It means “God is gracious” and is another version of Juan.
Liam – This is a shortened name for William and flows well with our last name. It is kingly and means “strong protector.”
Daniel – I love the sound of it in Spanish. I remember how faithful of a person he was in the Bible. The name means “God is my judge.”
Oliver – It is a well-known musical about an orphan boy, but despite it being of French origin, I love it’s pronunciation in Spanish. It is quite distinguished-sounding.
Alejandro – I am a fan of Alejando Sanz’ music and it is a Spanish version of Alexander meaning “defender or protector of mankind.”
Diego – This is Spanish for James and means “he that replaces.” It sounds very much like someone who likes to travel and is an outdoors person.
