To all my friends
Hi there! My name is Dolores Promesas, which means “sorrowful promises” in Spanish. It is a name that fits me like a glove and also kind of sums up my life. Dolores, my first name and Promesas, my last name: sometimes one is more prevalent than the other, but it is usually the clash between the two that shapes my personality.
I have heard all kinds of things about my name: “very original”, “sonorous”, “expressive”, “funny”, “sounds like a Spanish singer”… to be honest, it’s not my real name; I made it up and christened myself.
