  1. Mendizabal?
    I reckon this could be the first Jew with a Basque surname to feature in Jew or not Jew.

    Anyway reading his Spanish language Wikipedia page it says that he was born in Andalusia as Méndez (a Spanish surname) but later in life he changed it for Mendizabal in order to hide Jewish origin on Méndez family.
