Basque is a dialect of spanish even the most common surname like garcia has basque origin.

Basque is a pre-IndoEuropean language, it’s not a “dialect” of Spanish (Castellano), a Romance language. It’s like daying Gaelic is a dialect of English. Wrong.

It’s more like saying French is a dialect of Chinese. At least Gaelic and English are both IE languages.
