About The Hispanic American Character Name Generator

About The Hispanic American Character Name Generator

Hispanic naming customs are largely derived from the Spanish approach, where you have a single composite given name, followed by two surnames, which refer to each of the parental families. Tradition usually dictates that somebody's two surnames would be their father's first surname, followed by their mother's first surname. However, this can vary – in the nineteenth century, it was common in Hispanic America to have between one to three first names, followed by a surname that would have 'de' (from) in front of it (for example, Saint Teresa de Los Andos). Rules and conventions about names can vary from country to country – for example, Ecuador allows people to choose the order of surnames for their children, although that surname ordering than has to be stuck to for any other children in their marriage. Today Hispanic American names usually follow regular US naming conventions of a single surname, but they still derive from Hispanic origins.

This character name generator uses historical US birth name data grouped by decade, listing the most popular names for each decade of birth, and for each ethnic group in the United States. This means our character names are historically and culturally realistic, making them perfect for writers, creators, and gamers who want to write historical or minority characters accurately.
