Mexican first names & their origins
Where do Mexican first names come from?
Basically, all Mexicans always have four names: Two first names followed by the father’s last name and then the mother’s. In very traditional regions strongly influenced by the Catholic faith, the children of Mexico are often given the name of the respective patron saint according to the calendar day on which they themselves were born.
With Spanish as the official language, Mexican first names also find their origin in Spanish girls’ and boys’ names alike.
