Re: Origin of Latvian Jews #latvia

Louis,

Alexander Beider hasn't listed Dondes as a surname of Sephardic origin.

A Scottish origin for any Ashkenazic surname would be impossible but that's an interesting coincidence you've found.

A Spanish or Portuguese surname similar to Dondes doesn't come to my mind.  There's an Italian surname Dondero but no connection of the Ashkenazic surname to that one would be expected.
