    Have you tried variations of its spelling (if such exist)?

    Heh, yeah I tried that too. My surname isn't really French. It was originally a Spanish surname from the Canary Islands that was gallicized when the Canary Islanders went to Louisiana around 1760. Here's the stats for the original form

    Spain - 0.1

    And that's it!

    So my surname's more common in the U.K. and Down Under than in the U.S..I'm actually fairly surprised...

    Oh noes!!! Now I need to go buy a sombrero and join a Mariachi band!!!

    Actually though, my paternal line is R1a1, sooooo, I'm still Hella confused about how it ended up in Spain. My surname transformed from what it currently is into a Spanish form, then in about 1500 transforms into an entirely different and unrelated Spanish/Italian surname: Lorenzo.

    The adventurer who conquered the Canaries for Castile was a Norman named Bettencourt/Béthencourt. Maybe he brought some other Frenchmen or other Northern European mercenaries with him into the Canaries. Btw, do you know which Y haplogroup was common among the Gaunches?

    Yeah, since my only two DNA matches that aren't in Louisiana are in Poland and Sweden, I'm thinking that it may be a Norman line. However, there was a small population of Slavic mercenaries that entered Spain during the Moorish period, so it's equally plausible that my paternal ancestor could've been a Slav. The Guanches DNA group that I belong to shows the Canary Islands to be pretty similar to Spain, genetically, making it quite difficult to determine if the Guanches are of R1b or E1b stock.
