What's the difference between La and El
To name a ranch -- what would be correct La Mesa or El Mesa Cattle Company ?
la is for feminine nouns; el is for masculine nouns.
"mesa" is feminine, so it would be "la mesa"
And just to mention it, this is probably the definition of mesa that the name will refer to: (if you pulled the word Mesa from some old cowboy movie)
- Table, a flat surface on the top of hills or mountains. (f)
