Hi my name is Dante Manfredi I live on Long Island. My Grandmother is Maria Terese Pena born in October of 1916. Her father is Vincent Pena / Mother is Josephine Pena married in 1913 I think? She has sisters and brothers who have all passed away they were Elizabeth (Lee), Katherine (Kay), brothers Francis (Frank), and Joseph (Joe) Joe was the eldest then Lee, Tessie, Frank, Kay. They are all 100% ITALIAN. Immigrating from Italy through Argentina in the early 1900's. They come from Northern Italia - Calabria (Calabrese), Napels (Napilatano). Anything? I know somewhere along the lineage path Italian Immigrants with that name went into South America and the rest is history.... I can trace the Itaian Heritage at least 125 or more years back with pena Surname in Italy.......

hi there,

i don't know where does your name come from, but it could be from Spain, since it is also a Spanish name (albeit not a very common one). It is found in Galicia and Leon (Spain) and probably also in Portugal. We do have green eyes here too...

good luck with y
