Hello, my name is Rodrigo Valdebenito Avalos, my mother's name is Carmen Avalos. We are all Chilean... there are a lot of Avalos coming from the northern part of Chile, especially from Chañaral and Copiapó.
I found the origin of the name from the northern part of Spain, in the Basque country, but it appears to have spread to the rest of Spain during the 1100-1500.
I would like to find Chilean-related people with the Avalos name, please email. I speak English as well as Spanish.
