We need some opinions.

I am half Spanish. We will be giving birth and living in a Spanish speaking country (Ecuador).

What's your favourite Spanish name and what do you think of...

Felix
Santiago
Matías
Jerónimo grin
Aarón
Valentino
Ivan
Luciano
Elías
Joshua

Valentina
Marianna
Lucia/Luciana
Elena
Sofía
Arianna (more traditional spelling is Ariana...)
Luna
Isidora (we live in a place called Isabela...a problem?)
Ariadna
Emilia

DH's first name is Jesús. Would it be evil grin to give a son a middle name of Jesús as it's a family name which we haven't actually used her (despite 3 other sons!).

My DSM is called Isabelle. Would it be weird to give a girl the middle name Isabelle (Isabella, Isabel, any variant) when we live on an island called Isabela?

I like them all, I'm not much help smile . One of my daughters has the S name from your list - spelt the same way, so that may be my favourite, closely followed by Lucia, not so much Luciana. Isidora doesn't really appeal either but not because of the island where you live, I'm just not the world's biggest fan of Dora in any shape.

I think you'd be fine to go with Isabel etc as a middle name.

And of course Jesus has to be done smile . My daughters middle names are all family names, albeit of the Mary type.

What about Gabriel? Apologies for lack of accents - I still can't work the phone blush

Thanks. Sofia seems to popular, and Lucia. DH's favourite is Matias. Decisions, decisions...smile
