An interesting fact about Mexican culture is that a Mexican child's official name has two surnames, one of the father and the other of the mother. Quite unusual, right?

If you are a parent waiting eagerly for your little one to arrive in the world, then you must be in search of a nice name to identify him/her with. Most of the names nowadays sound too common, and it is very rare to find some unique baby names even after spending hours and hours on the Internet. Instead of picking one of those common names, why not give a special name to the most special person in your life? Mexican names can be just the answer you are looking for.
Now you might wonder, how can Mexican names be uncommon and different, they obviously must be using them in Mexico. Well, you are right, but think, an American with a Mexican name, isn't that uncommon! Besides, we know that we all are getting global, be it cuisine, apparel, education or culture. We adapt different cultures and appreciate the different values and traditions. If you are looking for unusual and exotic baby names (yes, these names are as exotic as their food!), then you can have a look at this list of Mexican names and meanings.
