Nekole, pronounced Nicole.

Mateo's legit; it's the Spanish form of Matthew.
Nothing to see here.

As a place name I think Morocco is cool--Morry, Rocco. I don't like Mariah Carey's Moroccan though--making a perfectly good noun into an adjective seems weird to me. Plus, they used the surname Cannon... When your surname is a noun, I think you have to be especially careful or you just sound silly. Moroccan Cannon.

There's also a Fry Fish. My people were obsessed with food, apparently.

Some friends of mine translated our names into their literal (but loose) interpretations. The three most memorable:
My best friend: Clumsy Child of God
Me: Defender of Three O'clock in the Morning
Boyfriend at the time: Dark Angel of Death

My husband's middle name is Duncan, which means "warrior"; our last name, Forsyth, means "man of peace." I joke with him that he must have a split personality.

I saw a young woman named Precious Jewel on Say Yes to the  Dress the other night - maybe it was her?

Zsuzsanna

Zsuzsanna is Hungarian. Although, I do think that's going to be a hard one to explain/spell if the child lives in North America.
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

Really? Wow...I would never have dreamed that one was legit. She's actually an adult and lives in Phoenix, Arizona but I have no clue where she was born. She was in the news in a peripheral way because her husband is a complete and utter expletive expletive expletive.

Well, my name meaning is "white bitter water." I have yet to figure out how that pertains to my life.  :P
