    The term Hispanic derives from Latin Hispanicus, the adjectival derivation of Latin (and Greek) Hispania (that is, the Iberian peninsula), ultimately probably of Celtiberian origin.In English the word is attested from the 16th century (and in the late 19th century in American English). The words Spain, Spanish, and Spaniard are of the same etymology as Hispanus, ultimately. Hispanus was the Latin name given to a person from Hispania during Roman rule. The ancient Roman Hispania, which roughly comprised what is currently called the Iberian Peninsula, included the contemporary states of Portugal, Spain, parts of France, Andorra, and the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar. In English, the term Hispano-Roman is sometimes used. The Hispano-Romans were composed of people from many different indigenous tribes, in addition to Italian colonists. Some famous Hispani (plural of Hispanus) and Hispaniensis were the emperors Trajan, Marcus Aurelius, Hadrian, Theodosius I and Magnus Maximus,...

    Today, Spanish is among the most commonly spoken first languages of the world. During the period of the Spanish Empire from 1492 and 1898, many people migrated from Spain to the conquered lands. The Spaniards brought with them the Castilian language and culture, and in this process that lasted several centuries, created a global empire with a diverse population. Culturally, Spaniards (those living in Spain) are typically European, but they also have small traces of many peoples from the rest of Europe, such as for example, old Germania, Scandinavia, France, the Mediterranean, the Near East and northern Africa.

    The Miguel de Cervantes Prize is awarded to Hispanic writers, whereas the Latin Grammy Awardrecognizes Hispanic musicians, and the Platino Awards as given to outstanding Hispanic films.

    "Hispanic America" is the modern name for "Spanish America", isn't it? If so, it's odd that Spain should be part of it, as Spain is not in America. But it's obvious that a new understanding of the term has come about, which includes Spain. Anyone disagree? SamEV 03:22, 9 March 2007 (UTC)[] I think, that the term "Hispanic America" defined not only a group of countrys with a comoun lenguages and culture but also a geografic localization. Reason why Spain should be excluded.--Lokesssea 11:26, 26 April 2007 (UTC)[] 1. i think that Hispanic America is a group of countries that share language, ideologies, etc. I vote to not exclude it.--, 26 April 2007 Well, then we should call to hispanic-america, hispanic-countries. You can see the Hispanic America definition in other world wikipedia.--Lokesssea 09:47, 27 April 2007 (UTC)[] 1.

    WTF ARE SPAIN HERE?? Good question!!! Now Spain shifted from Europe to south America. I am going to correct it. 12:01, 28 July 2007 (UTC)[] 1. When I first read that "Ibero-America" included Spain, I thought "Wikipedia, have you lost your mind?!" Millions of Spaniards would be flabbergasted to learn that they were part of a hyphenated America. Well, they are not. The noun "Ibero-America" refers only to the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking republics of the Western Hemisphere. The problem is in the adjective "Ibero-American": in the vast majority of instances, it also refers only those republics; but in the name of one organization, the Organization of Ibero-American States, it means Iberian states (Spain and Portugal, but not Andorra) and linguistically related states in the Americas. Compare: The fact that we can speak of Sino-American diplomatic relations does not mean there is a place called Sino-America that includes China. Kotabatubara (talk) 18:50, 21 March 2017 (...

    Guys, Latin America is named like that due to the latin origin of the languages spoken there. (i'm from Argentina and i study anthropology, most linguistics). Spanish, Portuguese and French are all romance languages, so according to this same root, all the countries IN AMERICA (noooooooo Spain, it's in EUROPE!) that spoke this latin languages, are included in what it's known today as "Latin America". Canada, despite of having a very important portion of it's nation that speaks fluent french as their native language, is not commonly included into this category although it should be, since french it's a Latin language and Canada it's located in America.Now, Spanish America or Hispanoamérica(in Spanish), means something else. This category includes all the countries which where part of the colonial Spanish Empire and in which, today, spanish is the official spoken language.

    I'm going to be attempting expansion by translating content from the Spanish Wikipedia. The stuff on cities will be coming over promptly, the rest will take more work. Any help would be appreciated. Zazaban (talk) 20:01, 23 January 2010 (UTC)[] 1. That'll do for today. I kinda sped through the translation, so it might not be perfect english, but I'll fix it a bit over time. Zazaban (talk) 20:33, 23 January 2010 (UTC)[]

    Puerto Rico was listed as a "country" when it clearly isn't (maybe just not yet). I have removed it from the tables. Some other solution might be found. Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 > haneʼ 22:13, 17 July 2010 (UTC)[] 1. Puerto Rico is a country, though not a sovereign independent nation-state. Restoring PR on the article. Salut, --IANVS (talk | cont) 22:20, 17 July 2010 (UTC)[] 1.1. Source? Choyoołʼįįhí:Seb az86556 > haneʼ 22:35, 17 July 2010 (UTC)[] 1.1.1. Puerto Rico belongs on this list. "Country" doesn't necessarily mean "sovereign state". Not to mention that PR has certain features of sovereign states, notably sports citizenship. Furthermore, this article already indicates that PR is a US territory. What more can you want? SamEV (talk) 22:44, 17 July 2010 (UTC)[] 1. 1.1. 1.1.1.

    Should wo merge these two tables? We'd even save one column, "Country" column being found in both tables. SamEV (talk) 23:25, 17 July 2010 (UTC)[] 1. I don't see how we would list the major cities in a country-table. Salut, --IANVS (talk | cont) 23:33, 17 July 2010 (UTC)[] 1.1. I'm not sure what you mean, but just in case I do, imagine the two tables side by side. SamEV (talk) 23:47, 17 July 2010 (UTC)[] 1.1.1. There are three colombian cities before the first uruguayan city. Should we repeat Colombia entry three times? --IANVS (talk | cont) 23:49, 17 July 2010 (UTC)[] I see what you mean! I forgot that the cities table is not a capitalstable! Well, then I guess we should add two columns to the countries table, for their capitals and populations. What do you think? SamEV (talk) 23:54, 17 July 2010 (UTC)[] While I'm not opposed to listing capital cities at the first table, I find the second listing useful. Maybe the displaying problems can be tackled with...

    Why is this article limited to countries that are majority hispanic? I think that this article should also recognize other countries or regions of countries with significant Spanish populations. Otherwise it seems to suggest that the only hispanic populations worth noting are those in majority hispanic countries. Opinions? (talk) 22:29, 11 August 2011 (UTC)[] 1. It would be worth making a mention of, at the very least, New Mexico, in which Spanish is co-offical. (talk) 23:29, 17 October 2011 (UTC)[]
