Meaning of Name Assignment

My name is Rocío Flores-Villa, my first name originates from Spain. In Spanish, “Rocio” is the word used  to describe dew. My last name “Flores” means flowers and it originates from Spain. Villa means village, and it originates from France.

My name was given to me after my mom’s favorite singer. My name was given to me to reflect my very mixed background. I was born into a family of mixed cultures as it is Russian, Spanish, Colombian, and Mexican. I have sometimes felt weird about dictating my name when asked about it since it is very long, and pronunciation  is difficult to understand. I always have my name pronounced wrong, so I have many variations as to how people call me.
