Surprised by Diego and Carlos. Would have thought Carl would work for Carlos.

I agree. Although I got 'Charles', if 'Julius' and 'Xavier' count as English names, 'Carl' should too.

But Carlos isn't the Spanish name for Carl, it's the Spanish name for Charles. So no, Carl shouldn't work just because it sounds similar any more than John should work for José.

Been living in México for nearly 2 years, have been studying Spanish for nearly 10. Never have I thought of "James" as the translation for "Diego". As far as I have ever known, "Diego is "Douglas" and "Jaime" is James. Also, "Elizabeth" for Isabel is a bit of a stretch. As far as I'm concerened, Isabel is the same name in both English and Spanish, and "Lisbet" or "Lisbeth" is the Spanish equivalent of "Elizabeth"

Diego is the Spanish form of Jacob, which is the original Hebrew form of the Greek name James. Diego and Douglas are completely unrelated.

It has to do with the meanings of the names and their original roots, not what they may look or sound like.

http://www.behindthename.com/name/diego This website says that Diego is possibly a form of Santiago.

Santiago doesn't sound very English, though, does it? It's not Spanish names and their variants

Santiago is a contraction of "santo" and "Iago". "Iago" means "James".

I thought Jacob. Because "Iago" sounds like Jacob. It was accepted.

I typed James as a guess for Javier but it was for Diego, and then I figured out Xavier, so it all worked out

I don't know whether they, like me, though of Julian first, as Julius is more Latinate and probably less common.

Jaime, Iago, Tiago, Santiago (which is actually the contraction between Saint and Iago), Diego and Jacobo share the same root. The same goes for Ramón and Raimundo.

Could "Jules" be accepted for "julio"? After all, it sounds more English than "Julius".

Agreed, as Julian is derived from Julius and is far more common.

No, because Jules isn't the English version of Julio, it's Julius. What is it with people insisting on accepting incorrect answers?

actually, raymond is equivalent for raimundo, not ramon, which doesnt really have a translation. Same with charles, carl should work as well.

Seriously? Xavier an _English_ name? Strictly 'Saviour', but we don't use Xavier or Saviour in English as names (Javier is probably as likely as Xavier, in England, at least - perhaps it's different in the US or Ireland). I tried 'saviour' and it didnt work and as I couldn't think of other alternatives for Javier/Xavier, I got one wrong. Anyway, quite fun.

It can be, but Diego is as well. Look in a Spanish Bible, you will find the book of James is called Santiago, which is St. James. Tiago and Diego are both forms of the name.
