This name is fit for royalty! Alfonso was used by kings of both Spain and Portugal– 26 to be exact! — for centuries and is still in the top 1000 name in the U.S. The name is a Spanish and Italian variation of an old Visigoth German name, meaning “noble”, “eager,” and “brave.” It’s popular enough that it’s familiar to people, so pronunciation and spelling won’t be a problem, but still retains it’s lovely Latino feel.
