Now that we know Claudia's last name is "Hernandez," should we assume it's also the last name of Sergio and Oriol? I'm leaning towards no, but I'm curious what everyone else thinks? --Proudhug 21:27, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

That is of course a very fair assumption, and probably true. The only red flag that pops up is the possibility that she was married before (unless I've forgotten that there is proof to the contrary). There may have been a Mr. Hernandez whom we don't know about. Even that small possibility is enough for me to say that unless we know for sure, I wouldn't feel right authoritatively posting it. – Blue Rook 21:39, 15 October 2007 (UTC)talkcontribs

That's exactly what I was thinking. She could've been married before dating Hector. Additionally, Oriol could've been her adoptive father or a step-father. Or he could've been her real father, but she had an adoptive/step-father whose name she took on. I know women with these exact scenarios. One even has an older brother who has the different last name. Are we reading too much into scenarios, or is it fine to just leave Oriol and Sergio as they are? --Proudhug 21:45, 15 October 2007 (UTC)

Given that each scenario brings uncertainty to the situation of their last names, it's safest to leave the two as they are. I'm sure they'll wind up with a card eventually, though, so I suspect this one will be solved soon enough. – Blue Rook 22:06, 15 October 2007 (UTC)talkcontribs

The problem I see is, how often are we assuming characters' last names? Were the last names of characters like Sam Singer and Miriam Henderson ever actually given, or did we just assume? I fear this is a slippery slope, either way. But like you said, there will more-than-likely be a trading card for all of these characters in the near future. --Proudhug 00:14, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

Actually, given that Claudia's last name is in fact Hernandez, both Oriol and Sergio would also be Hernandez. In Mexico you don't really change your last name when you get married, the last name carries on from the father regardless of marital status (I'm mexican). --Vulturous 20:41, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

You're likely right, however I still don't think it's a good idea for us to make assumptions. --Proudhug 02:45, 27 November 2007 (UTC)
