The Culture of Spanish Names

So many names!
  • Most people in Spanish-speaking countries have 4 names:
    • Nombres – Given names
      • 1) First given name
      • 2) Second given name
    • Apellidos – Family names (surnames)
      • 3) Father’s first surname
      • 4) Mother’s first surname
  • In Spanish, you call people by both of their surnames or their first surname only. For example, famous author Gabriel García Márquez’s would be Señor García Márquez or Señor García, but NEVER “Señor Márquez.”
  • In most countries, women keep their same last name when they get married.
  • A woman may also keep her full name and add “de” and her husband’s name
    • Diego José García Reyes marries Carla María Rodriguez Calderón. Carla could become Carla MaríaRodríguezCalderónde García.
