Our Family Name

Caballero. That’s our family name. It’s a Spanish word and it means, Knight or Gentleman. Though we’re not Spanish but it I like the sound and the meaning of it. It does reminds us that a long time ago, one of our ancestors must have come from Spain or its neighbouring countries. It will really be so cool to trace our roots but then,I don’t have the gifting and patience to do research. All I know are the stories that have been told to us by our parents and grandparents on the main origin of the Caballero’s  whose a Spanish priest in Cebu ( hundreds of years ago) who got a local girl pregnant. I don’t know whether that’s true or not but I guess only a historian can prove it. It would  also be cool to go to spain like go on benidorm holidays so,we could get to see ‘relatives’ there. I’m sure there will be more than a handfulof people with the same family name as ours. And I just can’t help but imagine, that while we’re there,we might get to find out our roots. I know,that’s wishful thinking and it sounds more like a plot for a book if we add more twist and mystery.
