Comments on Jacinto:

My husband and I named our son Jacinto (he-seen-toe) because we loved the name Jack. Not wanting John or Jackson we went with Jacinto as it was the name of my husbands grandfather. We named him Jacinto Ryan and we call him “Jac”. Spelling it without the “K” as it would fit his name. We get so many compilments on it. We are so happy with his name.

What a horrible name.

I don’t think it’s too bad. It would make a nice middle name with the right first name. The thing is, here in the United States he’d have his name mispronounced.
