The Difference Between Wealthy Spaniards and Jews

"Maria del Rosario Cayetana Alfonsa Victoria Eugenia Francisca Fitz-James Stuart y de Silva (yes, that's one name) is one of the wealthiest women in all of Spain.  She is worth somewhere between $850 million and $5 billion--but not for long. The Duchess of Alba, 85, is giving it all away so she can marry the man she loves."

Remarkable story.  But not because she's giving away her money.   This woman's name is like a half a mile long!

Jews don't do this.  My mother doesn't even have a middle name.  My grandparents didn't  bother so they just gave her an initial, "F."  And it doesn't stand for anything. 

My name could have been Sarah Ellen Rebeccah Hannah Stacy Goldstein Winer Stein Schmidt.

Nah.  It just doesn't have the same ring to it.
