established by God
Pronounced wah-KEEN, this name has color and mystery rolled into one exotic package. First brought to the attention of many US parents by actor Joaquin Phoenix and talk show host Kelly Ripa, who gave the name to her son, it’s the Spanish version of Joachim, a biblical name. Joaquin is also a saint considered the Virgin Mary's father. Even if people sometimes mispronounce it, Joaquin still makes a great choice if you want a sophisticated alternative to José or Juan.
