what are the parts of a spanish name like where does the fathers last name go in their childs name
Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. You have a "family tree" looking at a Spanish name! Here's an example:
Each child appears at first to have 2 last names, first his father's and then his mother's. Sometimes "y" (and) is put between the 2 last names. For example:
1. El Sr. Carlos PÃ©rez (y) GÃ³mez marries doÃ±a MarÃa Vega (y) GÃ³nzalez.
2. They have a son named Juan PÃ©rez (y) Vega (or simply Juan PÃ©rez).
3. His sister is named Adela PÃ©rez (y) Vega (or Adela PÃ©rez).
4. If Adela marries Leandro FernÃ¡ndez (y) Alvarez, her name will now be doÃ±a Adela PÃ©rez de FernÃ¡ndez. The "de" means the wife "of".
Do you have the idea?
