I am just curious. Does anyone know?

I tried Googling it but got no info.

So I put it to you ATS

Why the two last names?

ETA Also is she from Westchester or the Bronx? There are conflicting reports on that too.

Dude, don't you know that some people have both of their parents last names, usually hyphenated?
The more you know...

From Wikipedia:


Ocasio-Cortez was born in the Bronx, New York City, on October 13, 1989, to Blanca Ocasio-Cortez (née Cortez) and Sergio Ocasio.


So Cortez is her mother's maiden name, and Ocasio is her father's surname, and Alexandria took her mother's married name.

Progressives love to hyphenate their name.

Status symbol.

Her father's last name is Ocasio. Her mother's is Cortez.

I have a hyphenated last name as well. It's common practice with Hispanic families.

Don't know why it's new to you but common for one to do so.

example: Jackie Kennedy, 1st lady..went by maiden and then married names: Jackie Bouvier Kennedy...then she added a 4th...Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.

Quite common when famous to use maiden family name in the middle.*

*I know of a man who took his wife's family's name after his own.

That info has been changed by her.



The bio previously stated, “She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40-minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.” That sentence in the bio has since been changed, though it still doesn’t explicitly state that she moved out of the Bronx to Yorktown when she was 5 years old. “She ended up attending public school in Yorktown, 40 minutes north of her birthplace,” it now states. “As a result, much of her early life was spent in transit between her tight-knit extended family in the Bronx & her daily student life." Ocasio-Cortez was 2 years old when her father, Sergio Ocasio-Roman, bought a modest home in Yorktown for $150,000. The family lived in the Parkchester section of the Bronx at the time and moved to the house in Yorktown a few years later. Ocasio-Cortez graduated from Yorktown High School in 2007.

We’re NOT fooled: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez melts DOWN when folks point out she’s not REALLY ‘Alex from the Bronx’
