Puerto Rican name generator

This name generator will generate 10 random Puerto Rican names and surnames.

Puerto Rico is a small island in the Caribbean with a population of a little over 3 million people, all of whom are US citizens due to Puerto Rico's status as an unincorporated territory of the USA.
Puerto Rico was originally inhabited by the Taíno people, but as Spanish and other European settlers conquered the Caribbean. The Taíno people were the first to come into contact with Columbus, who noted they would make good servants. This, and worse, was sadly indeed their fate as both smallpox and slavery (and other exploitation) wiped out the vast majority of the Taíno people. However, DNA research shows many Puerto Ricans (as well as other Greater Antilles nations people) have some Taíno heritage.

While no longer a Spanish colony, Puerto Ricans do largely carry Hispanic names. English names also pop in here and there, as well as some African names as a result of a history of enslaved people being brought here in the past. Still, with nearly 95% of Puerto Ricans speaking Spanish, Spanish names are the most common.
Puerto Ricans carry the surname from both their parents, with the father's appearing first.
