star of the sea
This combo of Maria and Ana creates a lovely, romantic name that’s like a serenade to Hispanic heritage. It has always been a favorite in Brazil, Portugal and Mexico, but it didn’t land on the US baby-name charts until 1980. It spent 20 years on the rise and, even though it has dropped a few notches, it’s still a classic, lyrical name that won’t go out of fashion anytime soon.
