    This a great article by none other than a great lady. It accomplishes itself in providing a sense of understanding in what is inherent in all latinos, our culture. Amada, what a great name.

    Amada is a beautiful name and I can understand your frustration at having it mispronounced. I mean people called me MELA-GROSS! I mean really! Now I’m so proud of being Milagros…it makes me well ME!

    Hi Amada, so happy to know that I am not the only one who has to correct everyone who calls me amaNda. I got so frustrated growing up in upstate NY (1960’s and 70’s) that I told people my name was Lucy. When I was 19 yrs old I joined the coast guard and was stationed in puerto Rico. I quickly dropped the name Lucy and began using my real middle name Lucia. I never met anyone by name Amada in Mexico or Puerto Rico. I am Mexican married to a German and proud to be named Amada Lucia Hensel.
