Quoting The Pretender:" I LOVE the word angel and arcangel in Spanish (mi esposo es Peruano)"Me too. I love the name Angel, and my middle name is Renee (which in Hispanic cultures is normally a boy's name) so that's how I decided on the name.
Quoting mamiKrystal:" So, my 2 children's dad was Mexican, and my now-husband is also Mexican. My sons name is Simon Pedro, ... [snip!] ... by what you name your child? And how do you handle it? (moving across the country worked for me, but any other theories?)"
Quoting Bob Wehadababyitsaboy:" Yes,omg my MIL sucks at pronouncing names (she's Mexican too) when i was pregnant with my son DH and ... [snip!] ... me so much and they knew it. So When he was born we decided to change the spelling of his name so we didnt have to deal with it"
Quoting S U Z I E:" I can't say Simon and recognize it as a name because here it means "yeah" or "I agree"..."
Quoting mamiKrystal:" So what did you change the spelling to? Lots of people mispronounce my son's name, but at least they ... [snip!] ... like Cintya. It doesn't bother me because I know that it's hard to pronounce a name if you don't know how to make the sounds."we replaced the O with an E so Presten, it bothered me cause they knew how to pronounce it right and they know how to pronounce things right but they just dont want to, My DD's name is Juliette and MIL pronounces it Julietta it's annoying but im over it.
Quoting CokiMonsta:" I understand! I've got the opposite going on though.. My (&will be babies) last name is Dueño. Da-Wayne-nyo. ... [snip!] ... it Rayne. Like...RAIN but good god people pronounce/spell it wrong and the baby isn't even born yet -__- frustrating lol!"
