- Hi Alan,
Infobel has telephone directories for Spain
I'm not sure if this will do what the person wants, it really only looks
up what you ask it to, no variants. A good surname dictionary might be

by Patrick Hanks and Flavia Hodges gives origins and variants of
surnames, including variations by country. We have it here at CPL and
use it a lot for that kind of question.
