    Interesting. Where does the Gonzalez surname for the family come from, though, since it’s not from his mother?

      Maybe it’s Goncalves, but changed to a Spanish sounding name. I remember some Portuguese names being changed from Gomes to Gomez, or Mendes to Mendez. Americans are more familiar with Spanish names, so that maybe why they were changed.
