Still about this subject, I think you can find 'mixed heritage surnames' in a lot of European countries and maybe all over the world too, though I don't really know much about non-European surnames..
In Italy, for example, we have a big number of such surnames and they got some very different origins - it depends on the different regions or areas where they are from. Just think of Italian surnames like Giraudo and Rinaudo (from French Giraud and Renaud, Gerald and Reynold in English) or Calò and Macrì (from Greek Kalos and Makris, Good/Fine and Long in English) or Grassia and Sanges (from Spanish Garcia and Sanchez) or Modafferi and Vadalà (from Arab Muzafar and Abdallah) or still Crevatin and Staniscia (from Slavic Hrvatin and Staniša) etc..
