Mamacita/Mamasita – Why the Spelling CountsPosted by Kim
Fred and I had one of our (many) gringo moments the night we first set up this blog. While we owe the name idea itself to a good friend (Hi, Chris!), we discovered that HOW we spelled it sends messages we didn’t even realize.
Mamasita – according to UrbanDictionary.com (and confirmed among other sources), “is a misspelling of mamacita, the Spanish for ‘little mother.’” It means “a hot mama; a hot babe; a ho of particularly hispanic/spanish but possibly other decent.”
Whoops. Yeah, not that one, thanks.
Mamacita – means “little mother.” And “rather like the English word ‘momma,’ mamacita can mean a mother of both the standard and the red hot kind.” UrbanDictionary is even so kind as to note: “If you spell it ‘mamasita,” you probably don’t speak Spanish.”
So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Spelling does count. The English-major within me rejoices that we caught that one before I began snagging porn-seekers from all over the not-so-Spanish-speaking world!
