Naming NotesAlffa means first (ALFA the Spanish equivalent of ALPHA) and this being my first discovery the name appeared appropriate. However faith is a very big part of my life and, in the Bible the word is used to describe God. The Bible says that God is “the Alpha and Omega” so I added an error in spelling to differentiate both. In doing so I spelled my name. Using the first two letters of my first name and the first letter of each consecutive name you spell Alffa. Alberto Francisco Fuentes Alvarenga.
