Romo – That’s a Basque Name!
As I was sitting in the dining room of the Xarma Hostel (see my Places to Stay Page) I heard Jordi (one of the owners say to me (in Spanish of course), “Miguel, did you know that Romo is a Basque Name?”
I smiled and said, “Of course, that’s why I’m here!”
In turns out that about 6,500 people in Navarra have Romo as their first last name and a similar number have it as their second last name.
It’s official, I’m part Basque from who knows how far back and I have the nose to prove it!
