Appendix:Spanish diminutives of given names

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of hypocoristics for Spanish given names. Almost any Spanish name can have a hypocoristic formed by adding/changing the ending to '-ito' for male names and '-ita' for female names. This list tends to exclude these more obvious hypocoristics and focus on other kinds.

Note: In Spanish, double names or compounds (e.g. José María) can have their own hypocoristics distinct from those for the individual parts (e.g. Chema for José María, but Pepe for José and Mari for María).

Male names are marked with m, female names with f.
