Im saying ill take linguists word for it on the origin of a name compared to the Holy Office of the Catholic Church of Spain. Again nice of you to
continually avoid the points i made and backed up with links. Most of those names you cited are of latin origin you can dance around the point all you
want and try to brush it off with these silly questions that avoid what i countered with. It doesnt change reality.
Look ill even help you out some more and pic random so called "jewish " names from your link
Spanish (Cabaña) and Portuguese: habitational name from a place named with Spanish cabaña ‘hut’, ‘cabin’ (Late Latin capanna, a word of
Celtic or Germanic origin).

This famous Spanish and Portuguese surname is recorded in many forms including Sancho, Sanchez, Sans, and the Italian Sanzio. However spelt it is both
religious and baptismal in original, the derivation being from the Roman (Latin) 'sanctus' meaning blameless, holy, and later saintly, a meaning which
no doubt greatly contributed to its popularity both as a given name and later a surname. The name was also given further impetus by a 9th century
martyr from Cordova, who seems to be have been confusingly known as 'Sanctus, the Sanctus'. Even without the strong religious element, Spain was a
province of the Roman Empire for several centuries, and many Spanish and Portuguese names owe their existence to this period,
Da silva Name Meaning Portuguese (Da Silva): topographic name for someone who lived by a wood, from Latin silva ‘wood’.
Do i need to keep correcting you or do you get the picture ?
Though i don't blame youfor your stubborness . You're caught trying to argue a flower symbol found all over the world ( including roman temples in
iberia that predate the jewish immigration ) are distinctly jewish and youre trying to use the rationale that because some jews from hundreds of
years ago adopted certain spanish surnames that must make every said spaniard with that name a jew.
