Well my family has the name Montemayor from my mother's side. In our case the name Montemayor was used in an attempt to disguise Native American hertigage and become "Mexican" in the eyes of the government during the 1880s. We are Mescalero Apache by the way.

Spanish translation = biggest mountain. This is what a Spanish speaking gentlemen told me. Who knows?????
