My mother-in-law´s sister is called Amparo. And yes she is from Valencia. It must be for the Virgin of Los Desamparados, the local saint. There´s lot of Vicentes too because of San Vicente the patron of Valencia. Makes you wonder how strong was the faith of the people back then and how much of it has been lost in recent times.
