Against the background of the new Spanish legislation on names, it inquires into various aspects of the issue: the extent to which name-giving still accords with traditional patterns, the continued ubiquity of names based on Maria, the degree to which names are more regionally colored in the autonomous areas of the country, and the existence of a trend toward greater internationalization in the names given. Another central concern is unofficial name-giving. First names, nicknames, short forms, and cognomina are considered both in formal and intensional terms.
