Spanish/Galician (maternal grandfather)

Asturian isn’t important.

What do you mean by ‘not important’? Every single celebrity tagged as “Asturian” in this website also has it written as their ethnicity.

I mean that regions shouldn’t be included in the ethnicity (or as tags). Spanish is enough, to go any further is to me bizarre (with some exceptions, such as Galicia, Catalonia, Sicily, etc.). This isn’t done for most ethnicities, so I don’t see why Spain and Italy are the exceptions. Otherwise we could start using “French (Norman)” and “German (Saxon)” as well. If people want to know exactly where the ancestor is from they can just read the description.
