Latinos love giving their children American names. The truly odd thing about all this is that the child will have an American name that doesn't correlate well with their Hispanic surname. We must warn you, you can't escape fate! We love the fact that you want to Americanize your children. There's nothing wrong with that. You have the power to name your kid whatever you want. So if you name your child "AMY" that's acceptable. Little AMY LOPEZ RIVERA CALDERON will grow up fitting right in in this unbiased and multi-cultural world. What's even more interesting are the Latinos who give THEMSELVES American names.
Have you ever spoken to a Susana who prefers to be called Sue or Suzy? Or a Jórge who calls himself George? Perhaps a Roberto who insists you call him Rob or Bobby?
