ITH OR WITHOUT – An H that is.
For example with an H is Sarah Geronimo, Pop Princess. Without an H is Sara Duterte, First Daughter and feisty mayor of Davao city.
Also with an H is Sarah Lahbati, actress and sweetheart of Richard Gutierrez, mother to Zion, and Fil-French-Morocan beauty. With an H is activist Leah Navarro, also singer once upon a time. Without an H is Lea Salonga, our very own Broadway star.

PAOLO, PAULO – Paolo as in Paolo Contis (actor), Paolo Duterte (vice mayor of Davao City, elder brother of Sara), Paolo Ballesteros (actor and make-up artist), Paolo Bediones (TV host, by the way, whatever happened to him?).

MAMENG ALL – The following Carmens are all nick-named Mameng. As in Rosales (movie queen) and Soriano, Patena, Camacho, Perina (singers all).
But lately, Carmen Soriano (mother of Lloyd Samartino) has been appearing in GMA teledramas.
