Hello, my name is Ignasi Farinyes Gasalla. I'm catalan, Barcelona. In spanish, 'Farinyes' is spelt 'Fariņas', but the pronunciation is exactly the same. I know, more o lest, that my ancestors come for Galicia or Portugal, where my surname is spelt 'Farinhas'. In catalan, 'farina' mean 'flour', like in italian or portuguese... I'm interested to know anything my surname about.

Excuse my english, please.

Yours,

Ignasi
