Ramon


Explanation:
I would have blurted out Raymond too except for the fact that while growing up in Mexico I knew lots of Raymundos (also spelled Raimundo). Ramon is a completely different name. There very well not be any English language equivalent - that's true of many proper names - a name is a name. We never attempt to "translate" a proper name - what you're given at birth stays with you in any language. So, I'd say that Ramon is just plain Ramon - I can think of no English equivalent. Hope this helps you! Suerte!.

Raymond


Explanation:
BTW, "Ramon" is a Catalan name; in Spanish it's "Ramón". Accent on the 2d syllable in both.
