NOTES

The following guidelines about Spanish names construction does not try to be absolutely complete or precise. There are always exceptions and particular uses. However, they will help you to quickly recognize and construct consistent names of almost any common type.

In Spain a normal name is formed by a frst name followed by the first surname of the father, followed by the first surname of the mother. All offcial identification cards, passports, and commercial transactions must be signed with the frst name and the two surnames.

Either AP or AM, or both, may be formed by two basic surnames separated by “de” (meaning “of”). In this case, AP and AM are separated by “y” (meaning “and”) to distinguish them clearly. It is not so common but not rare.

Some Spanish surnames begin with a preposition such as “del”, or “de la”, or “de los” (meaning approximately “from” or “of”). The different versions are male, female, or neutral gender respectively. The proper form is chosen depending on the genre of the word used as surname (which may be of course different from the person’s genre).

There are frst names composed of two or even several normal ones. The most common combinations are based in catholic relevant characters and saints, but there are many others based on the most common frst names. There are also many male names formed by any common male frst-name followed by the name of the Virgin Mary. Some female names are formed following the same guidelines.

The frst name may also contain two parts separated by “de” or “de la” or “de los”. This is typical in female names based in the Virgin Mary name (based in the name of a famous local image or in the virgin attributes). Colloquially and even formally, the particles in the middle are easily lost. Moreover, it is normal that people with these names do not use their full names, except for identifcation upon authorities request. In normal life they only use the second part of it. This use was so common that nowadays, many female children are given offcial names with only the second part. Some of them are common, others have never lost the original “Maria” frst part.

The most frequent Spanish names usually have well known colloquial abbreviations or substitutions, sometimes not related to the original name.

In modern Spain normal people keep their surnames (with their own “apellido paterno” and “apellido materno”) no matter if they get married or not. Women are never using the husband surname or surnames. Only nobility and conservative old aristocratic families keep such uses.

Sometimes, in special cases mainly related to the heritage of an important wealth or signature belonging to the mother, some people may ask the authorities to reverse the order of their surnames. This allows heirs of the second generation to use the surname associated with the heritage. The surnames of the mother are otherwise lost in the second generation.

In special situations people may ask the central authorities for a complete change in their surnames, although it is uncommon.

In non-formal situations people may use only one “apellido” for brevity. Indeed, it is typical that sports, political and cultural celebrities are known by only one surname, typically the frst one.

A dash is not used to separate surnames in Spain. Only in very exceptional cases the parts of a composed surname are joined by a dash. However, a dash is used sometimes when Spanish people need to use their names abroad. This avoidsother people getting confused and thinking that the “apellido paterno” is part of the frst name.
