Language Tagalog: Names And Words

Description:Tagalog, one of the major languages of the Philippines, among others the language of the capital, Manila
Hitparade series:Philippines

For a long time the naming customs in the Philippines were dominated by Spanish names, as the result of 400 years of colonial rule of Spain over the Philippines. In the last decades however English names became more and more popular and widespread, reflecting the ever-growing influence of English and the USA in the Philippines.

There are only very few Philippine i.e. truly Filipino or native names in use nowadays, and they are rare. (In the list below those are the names with Tagalog as their language of origin.) Maybe they will be practically extinct in a few more decades.
