I was speaking to a friend (another salsa-addict like myself), who mentioned how she is trying to look for a cool salsa name...then I realized, I don't have a salsa name....hmmm

Keep in mind, this is not the name you use when you introduce yourself...it's more like the latin version of yourself that you associate with when you dance...

Do you have a salsa name?
Let us know what you chose....I could use some inspirtation....

Well my salsa name is obviously Kimberlita! (my latin diva alter-ego)

You can be Sarasita, mama sita!

Lol... i love this post... too funny. I always turn my friends' names into latin sounding ones. I especially love to say the names in a latin accent with a flamboyant lisp. Try it yourselves! It just adds that much more spice.

I suggest " Sara en Fuego" - Sara on fire.

I have a name, and its pretty its Salsa Bob.

I like Roberto "Asian Styling" better.

There it is, my suggestion to Sara:

 Salsara    (the accent is on the second “a”)

I’ll share my little secret with you :))   My name is Rado  a.k.a.  El DoRado  in some salsa related circles ;)
See you tonight!

The name Sara is actually present in Latin countries, and it sounds Latin if you pronounce it like in a Latin language, so you can say it's Latin.
You can also use Sarita which is a Spanish familiar form of Sara.
Cool

I second the name "Sarasita"!

But of course, you can have many alter-egos. After coming back from Colombia, I was christened by friends with a slew of latin nicknames:

Ninita
Ninita Chiquita
Nina Panina
Nita Binitas
Nichanita
Niniamienta
Nina China (China is pronounced "Chee-na", meaning chinese girl in spanish)
China-Chica
Nina bambina

I decided to stick with Nina Bambina, as this is the one my Alfredo-Suave likes to use.

It's already Latin, KT Wink Katie is a short form of Katherine, which in Latin countries is:

Caterina
Catarina
Catalina
Catelina

"a" is pronounced like in the English word "car", but shorter.
"e" like in "empty" , and "i" like in ... "in" Smile

Hmm, I guess I'll have to hear you say it in person... When I say Caterina, I think it sounds Italian.

Hey Valentin, do you think people don't know the right sounds of the letters?   ; ))   Almost the whole world pronounce them like that.   Oh yeah, may be in English they sound kind of strange   : ) : )
I thought it's not necessary to explain it, but your idea is good!   Cheers!
