A reader named Martha recently e-mailed me:
Hello! I am Peruvian and my husband is American of English/French descent. We are looking for a name for our baby girl that will travel well. We plan on living in both countries and our household and families are bilingual. We love the name Olive, but fear it does not sound good in Spanish.
I think Dora and Rosa match the simple, old-fashioned style of Olive quite well. I also think these names could work:
What do you think about the names above? What other names would you suggest?
P.S. The baby’s surname will be a 2-syllable Y-name of English origin.
Update, 6/6: Scroll down to the last comment to find out which name Martha chose…
