    Is my last name Russian?

    Since I'm in college now many people ask me if my name is Russian and are often surprised since I am hispanic.

    My last name is Yeverino. Is this a russian name?
    I don't know much about my history except my mom's side is totally hispanic mexican/brazilian. i do know however that my dad's side has ancestors that came from eastern europe long ago, into spain and then into mexico.

    The endings of russian last names are -ов(а),-ев(а),-ёв(а), -ин(а), -ын(а), -they mean "of" like Ivanov is "of Ivan" (family), -ский/-ская - means "came from" - Vladimirskiy - came from a town Vladimir. These are only the Russians most common last name endings but may be I've missed some rare of them.

    It could be a variation of Severino which is Spanish/Latin

    Julia is right, Severino is a very common name in Brazil, though I've never seen it used as a surname.
