Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen was awarded a Prince of Asturias Award in Spain several days ago.

In his acceptance speech, he mentioned his admiration for Spanish poet Federico García Lorca (1898-1936).

Which isn’t surprising, as one of his two children is a daughter named Lorca Cohen, born in 1974. (His first child was a son named Adam, born in 1972.)

What are your thoughts on Lorca as a first name?
