Excerpt from The Mexican Twins
This is a picture of Antonio Francisco Gomez and his twin sister, Margarita Teresa Gomez.
They live on the great hacienda, or plantation, of Seņor Fernandez, in the wonderful country of Mexico, and they are eight years old.
The boy is named Antonio for Saint Antonio and Francisco for his father, and the girl is named Margarita for Saint Margarita and Teresa for her mother.
But nobody ever thinks of calling the Twins by all these names. They are called just Tonio and Tita, to save time.
Even their father is n't called by his long name! Everybody calls him Pancho - that is, everybody but the Twins, of course.
Their mother is n't called anything at all for short. She is always called Doņa Teresa.
