    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Spanish Jose, Luis, Carlos, Juan, Manuel, Jesus, Jorge, Francisco, Ramon, Guadalupe, Mario, Alberto.

    Spanish: nickname for a dark-haired or dark-skinned man, from Old Spanish prieto ‘dark, black’. The adjective derives derived from the verb apretar ‘to squeeze or compress’, a metathesized form of apetrar, Late Latin appectorare ‘to hold close to the chest’ (from pectus, genitive pectoris ‘chest’). The use as a color term seems to have derived originally from its application to rain clouds and fog.
