American Nationalities in Spanish

We are going to learn the American nationalities in Spanish with this list, that includes different Spanish nationality names in masculine and feminine, and with their singular and plural forms.

Remember that nationalities in Spanish are written with lowercase, and also that adjectives agree with the gender and number of the noun they describe.

The following table contains the countries of North America and South America, but also some countries and territories that are physically belong to America but are politically and culturally associated with other countries and continents (these will be marked with a * in the cell of “Nationality in English” with information about the country they belong).

Note that some of the listed countries have more than one correct gentilicio or demonym in Spanish, but we have only written one trying to make it easier to read and learn them.
