Guero Meaning

Güero, huero or wero is a word used in Mexico and in some parts of Central America to designate a light-skinned person with blond, light brown, or red hair. The feminine form is güera. Although güero a normally refers to a blonde person, in Mexico, it can mean anyone with lighter hair, even a person with light brown hair, especially brown hair. This is opposed to tan, which is dark brown or black-brown skin tones and or of Amerindian or Afro-Mexican origin.

The word “güero” ultimately originates from the Spanish word “huero” (“empty”) from the phrase “huero egg” (an empty egg that was lost during incubation). The phrase hollow egg was associated with a sick person and from this association came the association with the color white.
