Popularity of the Name Alberto
Alberto’s success on the male naming charts in America seems to follow a typical pattern. The name has been in use since the late 1800s and grew pretty steadily as the U.S. Spanish-speaking population has grown in numbers. However, as we’ve come into the 21st century, the name Alberto has been declining in popularity. As second and third generation Mexican-Americans and those of other Hispanic descent have been assimilating into American society, Spanish names have been experiencing lower usage as more typical American naming trends have taken over. Alberto is a wonderful sounding name. It’s got that Italian and Spanish “Latino” suave and romance. It’s strong and masculine and the diminutive (Albertito) or the pet form Berto are absolutely darling.
