Paco Diego Garrobo Fernandez

If you shorten my name, I shorten your life.

Thanks, Kathleen!

The smaller the bun, the bigger the name.

As a hispanic female, I approve of your name. But shouldn't you have Maria in there someplace?
We adopted a dog from the Honolulu Animal Shelter when my husband was stationed at Schofield Barracks. We named him after our favorite movie character:
Tuco Benedicto Pacifico Juan Maria Ramirez.
You know, from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Tuco.

You are required to use my full name whenever you address me, refer to me in conversation, write my name, and think of me (with the expectation I will be a constant presence in your thoughts, providing, of course, that you have any in the first place).

LOL! A bun after my own heart... I have a name just as long (I'm Hispanic) and my bf loves to tease me about it.
Brandi, I don't have a Maria in my name, but the boyfriend loves to throw it in there for fun.

My maiden name is Castaneda, try learning to spell that in kindergarten, not phonetically, which would be Cast-ahn-nyeth'ah.
The easy way to remember pronunciation is:

R's sound like D's (sometimes softer at the begining of a word)
D's sound like TH's (soft or hard depending on where it is at in the word)

The company I work for recently began business expansion into Mexico. I can tell you that it has been a challenge for those of us not familiar with the long Hispanic names to figure out how to address a person versus how to document the person's name in our typical "first name, last name" fashion. It's difficult to fit the traditional four "node" name into our two "node" system. So, Paco Diego Garrabo Fernandez, please forgive us who are ignorant of your culture. We are willing to learn! :) You are so cute, I'm just going to call you Precious!!!! And, I am not afraid!

Well, it could be worse though. What if there was 'Torquemada' in the name too? That's not too much of a stretch, is it?

I don't know about the rest of Latin America, but down here, in El Salvador, a garrobo is a type of iguana

I am just adding "Sir", and for gosh sakes don't anybody be telling Chico about this.

speedyrabbit said...

Phew you could just die try to say it all

SixBunnies said...

Paco and Chico need to talk ...

Auntie Jane (It is official!) said...

Oh, be some other name. What is in a name? That which we call a Rabbit would be just as disapproving by any other name, right?

PDGF (Uh-oh, I'm in trouble now!) has detected nearby stoopidity emanatring from a hoomin. He has raised his buntennae and is communicating the secret command codes to launch a SHM (Surface-To-Hoomin) missile! Pretty soon now, a Disapproval-tipped MinuteBun 3 missile will be coming at us.

^ STH


Duhh! Stoopid hoomin!

Auntie Jane (It is official!) said...

Fleetie, don't try to pretend that was a mistake. We know you are working for the other side. You just let slip the secret launch code. Oh, no, wait, this is the way you communicate the secret launch codes. Hmmm, do the letters stand for something or are they just random? Which would be sneakier, trickier, most perfidious? It means something humiliating? No it is a tribute to the one human who understands...Sweet Human Man. Ah, yes, that is Fleetie.
