No they're not. "Torres, Flores, Reyes, Morales, Ramos"...Those are actual words in Spanish. Maybe you're right for Gonzales, but not the others.

I've heard similar things said about Spanish surnames, i.e., Quiñónes is Puerto Rican, while Quiñónez is Mexican. I'm not so sure it's that cut-and-dried. And Hernán Cortés was certainly Spanish, so I doubt the Spanish/Portuguese distinction works either.

He's not right with Gonzales either. Perhaps there is a portuguese influence in the name, causing -ez to become -es. But the equivalent name in Portuguese is Gonçalves (from Gonçalo). Not Gonzales (from Gonzalo).

I am here... but the last name Santiago is common in the Caribbean - especially PR and DR - not the rest of Latin America. Since this reflects USA, you won't find it there.

I think, in many Latin American countries, Santiago is more common as given name than as surname.

As a pro cycling and soccer fan, I was just writing down all the Spanish cyclists and soccer players I know, it got me a 29/30. Good score but my way of thinking had nothing to do with the question ;-)
