Belén Sophia.

[pronounced like Bey-len, Beh-len)

It's growing on me so much! Belén is the Basque/Spanish word for Bethlehem and we're Catholic's so this means a lot.

I just fell a little bit in love with this name. We're trying to honor both my Irish and his Basque roots. It's been a lot of compromising!

WDYT?

Thanks ladies!

I had a dream about having a daughter named Belén last night it was so cute.

But Nicole, you're right pronunciation will definitely be the hardest thing about it. I figure the most common mis-pronounciation will be Bellen? Maybe?

Love it! Unique and elegent! My daughter's name is Pascale which means Easter/Passover...She wasn't born at Easter but I still love it. I say go with it, nobody pronounces ANY name right anyway unless it's super common....and yeah Bellen wouldn't be horrible...

I like it a lot. I can see people butchering how it's pronounced but it happens with any name that's not overly common.

I think that the two names together are beautiful! Alot of people will mispronounce her first name but it's still quite nice.
