How does one say

in Spanish?

1 Answer 1


We do use the expression "macho alfa" in Spanish (the greek letter alpha translates to alfa in Spanish.)

I haven't heard much, if at all, the expression "hembra alfa" but that would be the translation, and we can see in the ngram viewer that it's somewhat used.

NGrams macho alfa - hembra alfa. Hay pocas hembras alfa

Other alternative would be to use "dominante" instead of "alfa", although there we tend to use "hombre" and "mujer" instead of "macho" and "hembra".

The ngram graph for "hombre dominante" and "mujer dominante" is priceless.

hombre dominante - mujer dominante - domina la mujer en el pasado
