Spanish is one of the top four languages spoken in the world.
This might explain why Spanish baby names are so popular too. Babies born all over the world (not just in Spanish speaking countries) are given beautiful Spanish names everyday!
Spanish people usually have a single first name (called a nombre in Spanish speaking countries) and two surnames (known as apellidos). People usually take the first surname from one part of the family and second surname from the other one. This is also the reason why Spanish names are often very long. However many of them will find it hard to beat the length of the longest known Mexican name, which is Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso.
You might want to select a Spanish baby name to honor your heritage or perhaps you have a Spanish surname too, passing down a family name, that means you have a Spanish full name. Many people really admire the Spanish language and culture so Spanish names like Isabella and Rafaella are popular choices. In this article, we have provided a list of 110+ long Spanish names and surnames with meanings. More more name ideas, check out these Spanish boy names and these Spanish girl names.
