The Name Joaquin

Hello,

Question… what do you think of when you hear Joaquin? I’m trying to see how this name will work on a Resume when he is older.

Hello,

Answer… I think of the actor Joaquin Phoenix. I’m not sure how the name will work on a resume, but there may be some people who will not pronounce it correctly throughout your son’s school years. The correct pronunciation is “Wah-KEEN.”

Hope that helps!
