in spanish, what do you put at the end of a name to show affection?
It depends on the region, but in Spain, they usually add "-ito"
So, my spanish name for spanish class is Catalina. To show affection, someone would say, "Catalinaito???"
No, in this case there are two options, the first one is to use the diminutive
"Catalinita" (without one a), but the second one is to use only a part of the name and add "i": "Cati",
the ending "ito"is formale gender/"ita"
for female gender, and "i" for both, but sometimes, in México, we use a known nickname, e.g.
Alfonso = poncho.
Concepción= Concha or Conchita.
José María= Chema.
