Eloisa is lovely. As is Paloma.

Raquel just screams 80's tarty woman. Eloisa nicer

They are both nice names, but prefer Eloisa. Ramona is nice too.

Second Paloma and agree Eloisa is much nicer than Raquel (but also prefer Eloise for some reason).

How about Paloma, works in English and Spanish (means dove)

Otherwise I love love Maribel ( traditionally a diminutive of Maria Isabel. But now used in its own right )

Eloise is nicer than Eloisa IMO. Less is more.

Raquel, yes just hear Delboy!!

I prefer Eloise or Luisa to Eloisa but it is pretty in itself.

Louisa is nicer. Is that Spanish by any chance?

Louisa us nicer. Is that Spanish by any chance?

Raquel is a bit chav IMO. Eloisa is nice, or I like Pilar too, if you're looking for Spanish names.

Never watched Eastenders or Corrie, so glad I posted here and Raquel seems like not a good choice ...
Does Eloisa not sound nice? Any other Spanish names that may be lovely?

Wasn't there a Raquel on Corrie many moons ago? I must admit that the name reminds me of Del Boy's girlfriend as well.

EmmaGellerGreen Fri 16-Aug-13 22:05:01

I guess Eloisa is slightly less awful

mynameis.... I was going to say the exact same thing!!!

on that basis I prefer Eloisa

mynameisslimshady Fri 16-Aug-13 22:02:54

I can't even read the name Raquel without hearing it in a Del Boy accent. grin

Eloisa is lovely.

Eloisa. Wasn't there a Raquel in Eastenders?

NarkyNamechanger Fri 16-Aug-13 22:00:41

Hmm can I say neither but maybe Luisa?

(Poet and don't know it)
