When capitalizing, such as in a song title, which is the proper form of capitalization? I have seen both:

LLueve en Mi

Llueve en Mi


You only capitalize the first L. It's a common mistake to capitalize both. The same applies with "ch", which is capitalized "Ch". Additionally, since 2010 "elle" and "che" are no longer considered letters in Spanish. I've been told that in the past the rule was different, which is why many people capitalize both.

  • I believe that 'Ll' and 'Ch' are no longer a single letters, but even when they used to be, correct capitalization was as you say. – deStrangis Jul 2 '13 at 12:57
  • That's true, since 2010. – Ricardo Jul 7 '13 at 15:31
