My husband has a Hungarian friend called Atilla. Apparently that's a very popular name in Hungary.

"Jesus - spanish"
My daughter's boyfriend is a Jesus. He's Mexican/Mexican-American.

I like the French names Rémi, Étienne, and José. (I love the name José with a French J so much more than with a Spanish J.)

Two of my favourite boy names of any language are the Irish Naoise and Dáithí.

The doctor that literally saved my twins in utero was called Jesus. My mum thought it was a sign from god, I just thought it was a bloody good name!
