Popular Honduran surnames

In Honduras, the surname is typically passed down from the father to the children. Children will usually have their father's surname followed by their mother's surname. For example, if a child's father's surname is Hernandez and their mother's surname is Rodriguez, their surname would be Hernandez Rodriguez. However, some families may choose to use only one surname, either the father's or the mother's. It is also common for women to keep their maiden name after marriage.
