Who is…Ramon Ignacio?

 

While Ramon has always maintained high usage among Spanish-speakers, it’s also used by Filipinos. Filipinos use the name Ramon, and Spanish names in general, because of nearly three centuries of Spanish colonialism in the Philippines during which Filipinos were forced to adopt Spanish naming conventions and, in part, Spanish names.
When coming to a conclusion of a predicted ethnicity of someone named Ramon Ignacio, understanding who uses these names is half the work. Since both parts of this name are shared by the same two groups, the ethnic prediction has already been narrowed down to two possibilities: Hispanic and Filipino. To get a fuller understanding of how Ramon Ignacio identifies, looking to where he lives is a helpful hint.
