Un Nombre en Español Para Mi Bebe

Many Hispanic people have long names. While it's common for most people to have up to three names (first, middle, and family name), people from Spanish-speaking countries traditionally have many names, possibly including more first names, two last names (apellidos—one maternal, one paternal), and a few honorifics thrown in to honor relatives or saints. One doesn't use a "middle name"—if a middle name is required when filling out a form, the second first name (segundo nombre) is used.

You can learn a lot about a Spanish speaker when you hear their full name. Longer names tell longer stories about the person's birth, background, and family.

We hope that you have found a name (or two!) for your little one on this list. Please answer the poll below to let us know what to add to this article!
