Hi,

We're looking for a name, preferably Latin based in origin, that works in Spain, Italy and England - e.g. Clara, etc.

I'm Spanish and my last name is very telling - De La Cruz. DH is Italian and has an equally obvious name - think DiCaprio, etc. Any names that are Spanish or Italian in origin or are easily pronounced in each language would be greatly appreciated.

We don't know the gender yet, so boys and girls names would be helpful.

Very popular atm but I love Isabella which works well in all three languages, I also love the Italian Antonella. Boys names all seem to be a bit more language specific, I like Nico (but maybe a bit nicknames?) and I love really Italian names like Gianni and Salvatore but risk of English people making up their own pronunciation of those!

To be honest almost all names ending in vowels will be pronounced at least very similarly in all three languages. In other words names such as Diego, Leonardo, Santiago, Antonio, and Isabela, Camila and Luciana, etc.

There will be tons!

Italian surname here and we named our DD Lara. Works in English and Italian. Not sure about Spanish though!
