Re: Vivo en Tenorio / I live in Tenorio
The name of the Spanish village called Tenorio comes from the Roman Empire era; its meaning stills uncertain, but it seems related to a pre-Roman god that also gave name to a creek that crosses the village. The 'Tenorio' was an important familiy in the province of Pontevedra (Northern part of Spain) during the late Middle Ages. Later on, some members of the family moved to the Southern part of Spain, that had just been reconquered after the Islamic domination, because the territory needed new inhabitants.
One of those Tenorios that lived in the Southern part of Spain caused the origin of the legend of 'Don Juan Tenorio', which also inspired Mozart's Don Giovanni.
Later, other members of the family moved to America when 'the New Continent' was discovered.
So, the origins of the family name is this small village in Galicia, whose name was given about two thousand years ago :)
