Hi,

We are an English family, but we are living in Spain. What suits him? Can be English (but works in Spain) or Spanish (but works in England) smile

Thanks!

Oh my goodness, he is adorable!

Nico
Victor
Hector
Josue
Inigo
Luca
Tomas
Eduardo
Oliver
Sebastian
Jorge

No idea how laughably outdated any of these are in Spain but those are the names that popped into my head when I saw him.

Congratulations on your lovely boy! flowers

Sooooo adorable! Congratulations!

I think he's definitely a Sebastian (if that actually works in spain! Relying on google here blush).

My favourite Spanish name is Jordi, but it's Catalan so may not work for you depending on where you are in Spain.

In spain - Xavier, Hector, Felipe, Raphael, Samuel, Leo and Daniel.

PS or Max, typically Maxi in Spain I think

I vote Leo

My Spanish born English baby (who's now 12!) is called Tomás.

It works for Spanish/English and also with all the belgiums and French around as well!

We are back in the UK now and I'm glad I chose name that keeps a bit of the history of his life but that can be easily used - and pronounced! - over here!

Nicholas is the most perfect name ever IMO, not v common but everyone knows it, works for all ages, is v manly and handsome, fits any profession. Nico is fabulous! Laid back and cool. And what a gorgeous baby.

Funnily enough my brother, cousin and nephews names are also all mentioned here!

Ds is the only one with Spanish connections! Seems a lot of names work across Europe nowadays which is nice.

He is totally scrummy flowers

CuppaTeaTeddy Fri 21-Apr-17 11:33:59

He is so cute!

There are so many weird and wonderful names for children in England now that I think you could get away with anything that you can pronounce fairly easily.

danTDM Fri 21-Apr-17 11:39:52

I live here.
In DD's class (7), the names that would work well in both countries would be

Hugo (not too many)
Eduardo (very few)
Josep (very few)

Please not (every second boy where I live, literally hundreds, includes grown men)

Vincente
Xavi/Javier
