Me Llamo Sánchez



Sánchez ( SAHN-chez) is a name that derives from the Latin word sanctus, meaning “holy” or “sacred” 

Somehow I remembered that when I was a young child, perhaps ages three through six, my father called me, Sánchez. I think it was because he thought I “looked Mexican” and somehow believed it to be either funny or honorific. Perhaps both. Perhaps neither.
