Give Your Bed the Beauty It Deserves During FANTASTIC BEDSPREAD SALE! Whatfs in a name? Say it in Spanish! By GARY PICKARD What's in a name? In Mexico there is so much packed into one name and also so much more than meets the eye. One of the small cultural gaps which exists bet w e e n our two countries is the under- stan d a b 1 e con .f u s i o n about Spanish names on the part of many Americans. Pickard In business, diplomatic and important social situations, this can be embarrassing. If you were introduced to Mexican President Gustavo Diaz Ordaz, for example, you would not want to commit the faux pas of addressing him as Senor Ordaz. If you did, you would be calling him by his mother's name. To clarify this, most Mexicans follow the Spanish custom of using three names: the given name first, then the father's or family name, and finally the mother's family name. An interesting example of this is Mexico's third largest city, Monterey, a highly industrialized area controlled to a great extent by two families, the Garzas and the Sadas. Between the two of them, they own beer plants, steel and glass factories and a dozen or more related firms. THROUGH THE years, the Garzas have married Sadas and the Sadas have married Garzas. As a result you now find in Monterey a Juan Garza Sada and a Juan Sada Garza, although we have not used the real first names of these two gentlemen. You would address the first man as Senor Garza and the second as Senor Sada. Now let us say that you attend a formal dinner and notice "Senora Maria de los Dolores Gonzalez de Fernandez" on a place card. How would you address her ... Senora Gonzalez or Senora Fernandez? About the time you had it almost figured out, confusion would set in again when her friends called her Lolita. This lengthy and seemingly complicated name is relatively simple once you break it down into its component parts. Her first name is Maria de los Dolores but friends and family shorten this to Dolores or the nicknames Lola and Lolita. CHANGING LOLA into Lolita is an expression of endearment or affection similar to turning Bill into Billy or Jack into Jackie Her family name was Gonzalez and she married Senor Fernandez, which is indicated by "de Fernandez." In other words, she is Maria de los Dolores of the Gonzalez family who married Senor Fernandez. In Mexico you also may hear frequent references to the Senores Fulano, Zutano and Mengano. Who are these three mysterious gentlemen on everyone's tongue? They are nothing more than the Spanish equivalents of our Tom, Dick and Harry. Our Mr. John Doe becomes Senor Fulano de Tal, which is also the Spanish way of saying Mr. So-and-so FIRST NAMES in Mexico also undergo the same radcal changes as many of our English names. Just as we transform Robert into Bob, they start with Roberto and end up with Beto. KITCHEN CARPET $7.95 . Yd. Carpetiand 319 E. Indian Sch. Rd.
