Other prominent relatives:
Ochoa is well known to be a Basque surname. Asturian is just Spanish, it doesn’t make any sense to replace Basque with it.
It’s a surname of Basque origin but all recent ancestors are Asturian.
Okay then, I guess you agree that my formulation was correct from the beginning and that your comment made no sense?
Basque can be put back to her father’s ancestry. It didn’t need to be changed from the beginning.
her family is Asturian, period.
I never said her family isn’t. But you wrote that Basque should be replaced with Asturian, which by your own logic wasn’t correct.
