Spanish Family Names: Family Members in Spanish

Published Saturday, December 27, 2008

Here are a list of various family members (relatives) names in Spanish. You can use them to say the names of your family members in Spanish. The names for male members are masculine and end with the letter "o", and the names for female members are feminine and end with the letter "a". So you replace the last letter in a family name with "a" or "o" depending on if the relative is female or male, respectively. If you are naming a family member group that has both male and female relatives then you use the masculine form.
