what are the parts of a spanish name like where does the fathers last name go in their childs name

  • spanish -

    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 Pérez (y) Gómez marries doña María Vega (y) Gónzalez.
    2. They have a son named Juan Pérez (y) Vega (or simply Juan Pérez).
    3. His sister is named Adela Pérez (y) Vega (or Adela Pérez).
    4. If Adela marries Leandro Fernández (y) Alvarez, her name will now be doña Adela Pérez de Fernández. The "de" means the wife "of".

    Do you have the idea?
