  2. Maria cuz his mom and stepmom
    And Fernanda cuz my oldest niece
    Im so in love to have my second blessed

  3. I fall in love with Hallie and Maria. Hallie is a streamlined variant of Harriet, while Maria makes me approachable.

  4. From the day we got engaged, we knew our first daughter would be Maria as the Latin form of Mary, Mother of Jesus! Well, after four amazing sons, we finally got to use it!
    It is a common name, but that also makes it easy to spell and pronounce!

  5. Mother of God!

  6. I always loved this name, because it’s classical, short and you never get tired of it. I love how it sounds, don’t you agree?

    She’s the sweetest little girl, always smiling and cheerful!

  7. It is a classical name, and I think it has a lot of strength.
