You can try www.babelfish.com. They can translate everything in many different languages.
Elizabeth in spanish is "Isabel"
(that doesn't mean that a girl can not be called Elizabeth in Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela... )
Emily is "Emilia" in spanish.
Brittany is a breton name and could be translated as "Britania" but it doesn't exist in spanish (nobody is called like that)
Megan is a welsh name (Wales UK) and it is equivalent to Margaret (completely different name, although) so in spanish should be "Margarita" (yes, like the cocktail). Margarita means Daisy in spanish.Is there a reliable source to translate english into spanish names?
I'd say "Elizabeth" would be "Isabel", but that's just from my experience (Queen Elizabeth of England was called Isabel by the Spanish). "Emily" would indeed be "Emilia"; as for the others, maybe you could just make up totally different names? or, just use the English forms, and try to pronounce them like a Spaniard ("bree-tan-ee", "may-gahn"), or something like that.
The closest names in Spanish to "Megan" would be "Margarita" or "Rita", there really isn't anything close to Brittany that I know of.Is there a reliable source to translate english into spanish names?
To start, Elizabeth is exactly the same!
(As far as I know, "Brittany" and "Megan" don't exactly have an exact Spanish counterpart; not all English names have a Spanish version)
