    Destribuição Regional dos Sobrenomes Portugueses\Locate Portuguese Surnames


    My first surname highest incidence is in Porto, Lisboa, Aveiro and Braga. Likely a surname with its origins in the north.




    My second surname highest incidence is in Lisboa, Setúbal, Porto and Castelo Branco. I think it is a surname originally from Castelo Branco but Lisboa, Setúbal and Porto happen to have higher incidences because many families migrated from Castelo Branco to those cities in the 70's and 80's (my family included).


    My third and last surname highest incidence is in Lisboa, followed by Castelo Branco and Santarém. This one I am pretty sure that is originally from Sertã and neighbouring regions because every stranger I have ever encountered during my life with this surname happened to have relatives from there.

    My first surname is common in coastal districts between Douro and Tagus rivers, its highest incidence is in Lisbon, followed by Aveiro.




    My second and last surname highest incidence is in Lisbon, followed by Setúbal. Many relatives migrated from Alentejo (Beja) to those cities.

    Of my grandmother's four family surnames... one is most common in Aveiro, another in Porto, and the other two in Lisbon.

    You should divide those numbers by regional population, instead of just seeing absolute values. My surname might exist in higher numbers in Lisbon, but its frequency is a lot higher in Bragança
