I am from Ecuador, and as you probably know our last name is quite common in Quito, as well in Ambato. My family is from Ambato (Papa Leopoldo is my Grandpa and Mamita Lucha (Cárdenas) is my Grandma). When I was in the university I got 5 classmates "Salazar" even my husband is Xavier Salazar and his family are from Imbabura, we had already test our genetic relationship and seem that our families are not related at all. I know that some of them are original Salas, but it was changed to be more important in the colony time (ask me why???) seem like if you had a short last-name it was a signal of poor abolengo??
