We need a name that works in English, Spanish and Russian. Currently we like Lucas and Sebastian. Any other ideas?

Love Alexander and Nicholas / Nikolai but can’t use for family reasons. I like Anton a lot but DH doesn’t. Seems hard to find ones that work in Russian in particular but sound natural also in English.

I love Sebastian!

Would Maxim, David or Isaac / Isaak work?

IcarusFlies · 04/02/2024 21:52

Daniel, David and Leo all “no”s from DH. Love Leo but too popular for me…

Will raise Isaac, Adam and Victor - thanks. Maxim is a no as well.

Sasha? Not sure if that works in Spanish though!

IcarusFlies · 04/02/2024 22:17

In Russian Sasha is short for Alexander, so wouldn’t work for us… names starting with S don’t work in Spanish, also, unfortunately, as I liked Stefan.

I think Pascal is a very European/International name.

Sebastian and Lucas are both lovely though, I think they're nicer than my suggestions!

FayCarew · 05/02/2024 11:36
