I just learned that people in many Spanish speaking countries have two surnames. One from father and the other from mother. And it goes like this.If Carlos Garcia Sanchez marries Maria Jose Escudaro and they have a child called Marta.Her complete name will be Marta Garcia Jose.Now isn't that nice?Portuguese, I believe reverses the algorithm and puts mother's surname first. That way mother's surname gets carried forward instead of father's surname.I think this is even better.
Thats fascinating .Cheers
Some of them India have their mothers name as surname. E.g., Sanjay Leela Bansali, Film Director.
