SPANISH names

:: Nicknames :: Spanish Bullfighters :: Male & Female Names :: Spanish Names Links ::

This is a list of hypocoristics (pet name or term of endearment, or nickname) for Spanish given names. Almost any Spanish name can have a hypocoristic formed by adding/changing the ending to '-ito' for male names and '-ita' for female names. This list tends to exclude these more obvious hypocoristics and focus on other kinds.
