    Because it’s Galician.

    I dont think she has Italian heritage as far as we know. “Reficco” sounds Italian but it does not exist in Italy as surname. Most “Refico” (more common spelling) on trace back to Portugal.

    I’d change to a “Spanish, possibly other”.

    So she is not of Indigenous descent and/or not Mestizo?
