Not fond of Vega as a little boy first name. Vega is a common Spanish surname. If he’s a little older (by that I mean 4+ yrs) I would use more common names that he’s familiar with like:
Andrés (nn Andy)
Crisóforo (nn Cris)

I think Vega is a good name man. Plus, it fits with the last name good. I would stay with Vega

AJ, was/is he currently speaking Spanish? I mean, at such a young age he will grow bilingual (if you continue to encourage Spanish at home with him) and you can really name him anything you want. You can go more ethnic with traditional Spanish names like a previous poster listed. Or you can name him a typical English name. What is currently being called?

he is being called Jorge at the moment but I don’t really like the name.

If the child is two, it is cruel for you to change his first name. It doesn’t matter whether you like it or not! Also, Vega is too odd for me.

Well I have a few other kids I have adopted and everyone I have changed their names when they were born, basically for their protection

well not when they were born but when I got them.

AJ, do you want to go with a more ethnic name?
Would you rather have a more traditional or modern name?

AJ, so what about
Christopher/Cristofer/Cristian (nn Chris/Cris)
Emanuel (nn Manny)
Jaime (pronounce HAY may or JAY mee)
Paco (this is a friend’s name, so I’m a bit partially to it)

I like Cristian but I have a brother named Cristian, so it would be weird... have a son named Mateo already and one named Mathieu

I didn’t sign my last post, sorry.
I like these as well:
Samuel (nn Sam/Sammie)
Thomas/Tomás (Tom/Tommy)
Michael/Manuel (Mike/Manny)

Alfonso/Alf (nn Alfie - not one of my favorites)
Since your brother is Cristian, what about Cruz for the son?
posted by Alison :: Feb 21, 2008 11:00 PM | report
Cruz is the name I have for this lil boy’s older brother, Cruz was my main choice.

how about using Vega as a middle name with one of the other first names.
posted by AJ (poster) :: Feb 21, 2008 11:27 PM | report
maybe Nicolas Andres Vega Martin
posted by AJ (poster) :: Feb 21, 2008 11:35 PM | report
I think that might be a good idea.
I like Antonio and Vega, but its a name of a SOAP character.
How about....
Nicolas Vega Martin
Tristan Vega Martin
Felipe Vega Martin
Tedor/Theodore Vega Martin
