This is a list of notable Puerto Ricans[a] which includes people who were born in Puerto Rico, people who are of full or partial Puerto Rican ancestry, and many long-term residents and/or immigrants of other ethnic heritages who have made Puerto Rico their home, and who are recognized for their life and/or work.The list is divided into categories and in some cases sub-categories which best describe the field for which the subject is most noted. Some categories such as “Actors, actresses, comedians and directors” are relative since a subject who is a comedian may also be an actor or director. In some cases a subject may be notable in more than one field such as “Luis A. Ferré” who is notable as a former “governor” and as an “industrialist”. However, the custom is to place the subjects name under the field for which he/she is most noted.
