del Carmen

It's very common in Latin cultures to have two or more names - 
other than your last name.

Printed trousers Zara - Blue top Mossimo - Daniblack shoes - Arena Milano grey bag

In fact we are so use to it that if you have just 
one name it seems like there is something missing.


While growing up, when you were in trouble it was very likely that you 
would be called in by both names - it meant it was serious.


In my case, my middle name is del Carmen. 
I usually forget it exists.
I never use it, but it's in my identification card.



How about you ?
Have you got a middle name ?

I was definitely aware of this, because I had some Latin friends. You are right, when they got in trouble you would definitely hear their entire name. HaHa I'm not Latin but my middle name is Elizabeth. Love those pants!!!

del carmen is a lovely middle name!

most of us have a middle name here, too. and if your mom yells out your first name, your middle name AND your last name, you are in BIG TROUBLE! :)

Your middle name reminds me of a lovely trip to Seville.
My middle name is Louise.

I don't have a middle name but I've had a nickname since I was a baby (given by my older brother) - it feels like a middle name :) (My name is Mojca /moytsa/ and 'Biba' is the nickname).
