  1. We just love the name. My husband originally being from Mexico City, we’ve chosen all Spanish names for our children, and they also all have biblical significance. The English counterpart to DIEGO is Jacob or James which means “supplanter”. Everyone always associate the name with Diego Maradona, famous Argentine soccer player. My husband is a huge soccer fan as well, which may have influenced his decision on the name lol

  2. Names after one of the greatest cities. San Diego!
