Strangest Colombian Names -- Part 3
I have, on previous occasions, written about the plethora of strange names that can be found in Colombia. This year there are 1,691,862 Colombianos (about 4 % of the entire population of the country) with names that are completely unique to them. Though, I am not sure that this is something to boast about. Here are some SUPER examples that come straight from the lists at the Registraduria Nacional:
To this list of unique names, you can also add the OFFICIALLY longest first names in Colombia.
Female: Adriana Clemencia del Corazón de Jesús y de la Santísima Trinidad
Male: Fabio Augusto Luis Felipe de Gonzaga y San Mauricio.
Unfortunately, these two have 2 additional names that aren't listed -- their last names. Try learning to write that in Kindergarten :)
This just adds more laughs to previous posts on the subject. Feel free to check them out:
