I particularly like the way this name sounds when pronounced in Spanish, but if someone were to say it with an English pronunciation it sounds great too.

This name is wonderful. It's a great name for a girl with a bilingual family. Think about it ... Olivia, no llores...Olivia, don't cry... See, it works! Plus I might be a big fan of Olivia Pope.

I know a little girl named Paloma and saying her name is like uttering a mini-poem every time.

Again, with this name I favored the spelling that works the best in Spanish. This name is a HUGE favorite and has been topping the most popular babies names lists for years.

Totally not based on anything other than my opinion, but don't you think a baby named Aldo could grow up to be an international business person?

It's kind of an epic name. It has a whole Biblical aspect to it, but it also is a good solid name even without that angel association.

This is what my mom was going to name me if I was a boy, but I'm not. Still a good name though.

This is my cousin's name and I will admit that the sound of the "g" changes quite a bit from Spanish to English, but fortunately it sounds great either way.
