    “Lucich” (various spellings) is a Dalmatian family from present-day Croatia. Journalist/tv host Rodrigo Lussich has claimed to be a relative of him.

    “Milei” has two branches: Italy and Hungary. There are not many Hungarians in Argentina, though.

    • andrew says:

      Lujan may indicate Spanish ancestry.

    • ethnogenesis says:

      The “other” could be Balkans Jewish, many news sources reported that Javier Milei officially converted to Judaism (not sure which branch of the religion), and his theorized Italian, Croatian and Hungarian could trace his family tree to a city like Trieste on the Italian-Slovenian border (former Yugoslavia).

      • andrew says:


        His likely Dalmatian ancestors are from an island named Brac/Brazza and have the Slavic surname alongside Italian first names on Geni.com.
        I guess you meant they sailed from Trieste (largest Adriatic port) to South America, but were 99,9% Catholic.

      • andrew says:

        Btw Trieste is an Italian town though there is a Slovene and also a noted Jewish community.

        He is another case of “Croatian” descendant in New World, a country that did not exist until 30 years ago.

        Mind what Chilean President (Mr.Boric) said:

        “Mi familia viene de Dalmacia, el lado italiano de Croacia. A mi abuela le digo Nona”. (My family comes from Dalmatia, the Italian side of Croatia. I call my grandmother “nona” -> from nonna, Italian for grandmother.

        If Croatians are happy to claim such people as their ones, leave them alone.

        • andrew says:

          Nobody wrote “big”.

          Perché sei una capra, Svevo e Saba si studiano a scuola (non so nel programma di sostegno che facevi te), anche se non trattano di ebraismo..
