however, for white girls, it seems trailer-y.
Thanks Lash, I'm glad you said that. I was going to submit that observation, but I figured the usual suspects would make their usual needle in the haystack observations.
I don't know what country the OP is writing from, so I can only talk about English.
True, a Mexican man named Angel sounds quite normal.
Same with a man named Jesus. No problem if they live in Mexico or in most cases the U.S. However, I do see a lot of American born boys who's parents are from Mexico call themself Jesse, or Chuy, if their name is Jesus. An aside, I have no idea why Chuy is a nickname for Jesus. I've asked people who I thought would know, and they didn't. I guess it's a 3rd or 4th step away, like Peggy for Margaret.
Other thing, a name that might sound dorky for a white kid is totally cool for a Mexican....Like Herman.
I don't know a word of French, but when Olivier said his dtr was named Angele, I went to an quick online translator and typed in "angel" and got the translation of "L'ange" I thinking perhaps Angele is more like the English version of Angela. That one letter in English makes all the difference between a quite nice name and once that does make you wonder if the mother lived in a double wide.
Again, forgive me if you were given these unfortunate names, but whenever I hear the name Crystal or Tiffany I want to ask if they were given a stripper pole for their 5th birthday present. Angel is kind of like that.
