Hi Eduardo,

In my experience it�s not uncommon on books from Latin America to see a nickname put in quotation marks or italics at the end of the name, rather than between the given name and the surname(s) as we might expect in English. This happens both with nicknames that are common short forms for given names (e.g., Jos� Gonz�lez �Pepe�) and, especially in Brazil, nicknames that are only tangentially related to the given name (if at all) as with seemingly every Brazilian footballer (Pele, Kak�, Xaxugazinho J�nior, ad ridiculum).

I would set this name up the way Adam proposes below, at least with the 100 and first 400. I wouldn�t include the 2nd 400 unless his name appears in that order somewhere on the piece, but I would include that last 400 for a �just in case� scenario where a user sees the book and thinks �Rodr�guez Yeyo� is a compound surname. (This seems unlikely, but not outside the realm of possibility, and it won�t hurt anything.)

I also agree with Adam that I would note in the 670 that �Yeyo� appears in italics whereas the rest of the name does not.

Without seeing the title page, it's hard to know if what is transcribed in the 670, Aurelio Rodri�guez Yeyo, is accurate or not.  If indeed it actually appears as Aurelio Rodri�guez Yeyo ("Yeyo" in italics), I would probably have established his name as below if I understood that Yeyo was a nickname for Aurelio.

100 1 Rodri�guez, Aurelio
400 1 Rodri�guez, Yeyo
and perhaps
400 1 Rodri�guez, Aurelio Yeyo
400 1 Rodri�guez Yeyo, Aurelio

It might also be helpful for the cataloger to add in the 670: "Yeyo" appears in italics to make things clearer.

Subject: Nickname as part of surname

A colleague asked me if I could edit the authority record for Aurelio Rodri=
guez Yeyo, coauthor of "De Cuba con amor: el danzon en Mexico," as Yeyo is =
a nickname for Aurelio. I don't have the book to refer to, but on the cover=
 his name appears Aurelio Rodriguez, followed by Yeyo in italics (the rest =
of his name and the names of his coauthors aren't italicized). I've looked =
through RDA but haven't been able to find instructions dealing with this ki=
nd of situation. Should Yeyo remain part of his name, with a 400 for Rodrig=
uez, Aurelio and a corresponding 670, or should it be changed to Rodriguez,=
 Aurelio with Rodriguez Yeyo, Aurelio relegated to a 400?
