My husband and I had a terrible time coming up with names for our children. We didn't want any family names, but needed names that worked well in both English and Spanish and were easy to pronounce for the non-Spanish speaking side of the family.
We wanted something fresh yet classic. Our son's name, Matías was inspired by a German ski jumper when my husband was watching winter sports on ESPN. It worked in Spanish (that's the version we use) and wasn't too common. Our daughter's name, Lucía (that's Little L) was much more difficult to agree on, but I wanted a strong, traditional and not overly used Spanish name. I felt so much pressure to choose the right one, after all this is for life!
The point is that every parent draws inspiration from somewhere - a family name, a favorite sports star, a name they once read in a book or a favorite television show character. I always say, when you know you know. So if you are looking for some inspiration, here are names that have made comebacks or gained in popularity thanks to recent television shows and characters.
