I simply disagree. I am Conde from Puerto Rico but our roots are traced back to France. What should be noted is that we are all from the same origins but the name itself morphed a little bit especially when entering other non-francophone countries where the accent mark was automatically cut off. This is very common to have happened. A little over 30% of Puerto Ricans can trace their ancestry to Corsica (yes a French Island) which explains why there are so many French and Italian Surnames in Puerto Rico.
