Re: Players Full Names

Those of spanish descent have 2 last names (father's and mother's) not a middle name.

He probably abondoned the last bit purely because it doesn't sound as stylish.

And it's very common in south american spanish-speaking countries the presence of a middle name so argentinian and chilean players is almost sure they have a middle name.

They are using their fathers' last names I guess. Father's last name comes first. For example Parera should be Nadal's mother's maiden name. (at least that's what I was taught in spanish class)

López, Robredo and Moya are father's last names

In spain and most of latin american countries, you could have many names (generally 2), and two last names (the first from the father, and the second from the mother) and only the first one is heredated to the sons. And the wives don't acquire the husband last name they conserve her maiden name.

Actually, I believe that you can pick any two ot the four names of the parents (two of the father and two of the mother) and give them in any order to the child.

But in most of the cases (maybe 99%), the first last name is the the first last name of the father, and the second last name of the child is the first one of the mother.
