Castizo, however he can still pass in Europe, falls into that odd range of Euro phenotypes.

He looks part Asian.

Trevino surname comes from a Spanish place name

Thanks! I always thought he has Italian ancestry, because the name “Trevino” looks Italian, and on other pictures of him he too looks Italian (definitely not here), but it makes sense, when his surname was once “Treviño”. Am I right that the English/Americans don’t use diacritical signs? So his family may have dropped it as an act of assimilation.

all surnames come from

1: place names (“Lincoln”, “Washington” etc..)
2: job/work (“Smith”, “Cook”)
3: physical features (” Brown”, “White” etc..)
4: patronymic (“Johnson”, “Rodríguez” etc..)

‘Mexican’ is not ethnicity.. he’s probably native southamerican(Indian) with some Spanish blood.

I’ve seen whiter mexicans

He doesn’t look 100% white. I can tell he’s Latino. He also looks like he has a little Asian in him. That’s not surprising though, some Hispanics look a little Asian due to the Amerindian blood.
