Spanish term or phrase: Javier or Jávier
In a German document I'm translating, some Mexican names are coming up. I'd like to use correct accent marks on those names in the translation because the author is using correct accents for French names, but somehow ommitted them for Spanish names. Hence my question: In Spanish does the name Javier usually take an accent (Jávier) or not (Javier)? Thanks in advance for your help!
