Güero (sometimes spelled guero, huero, or wero) (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈ(ɡ)weɾo]) is a word used in México, and some parts of Central and South America to denote a person of fair complexion (regardless of hair color), or with blond, light brown, auburn, or red hair. The feminine form is güera.
The word "güero" ultimately originates from the Spanish word huero [ˈweɾo] (empty), from the phrase huevo huero [ˈweβo ˈweɾo] (an empty egg that was lost during incubation). The phrase huevo huero became associated with a sick person, and from this association came the association with the color white.
