The names are further divided into Dims (diminutive forms of the given name); Vars (spelling variations of the main given name as found in various period documents); ("Romance" variations, generally the Spanish version of the given name); and Pats (patronyms or metronyms based on the given name). The Romance (Rom) and Latin versions, when used to identify persons who may have been of Basque origin in the records, are also noted below. In cases where only one reference to a particular form was found, it is cited in parentheses. See the bibliography for the four-letter codes used to indicate the reference books listed below.
