Bear in mind that Galicia, though a region of Spain, has close links with Portugal and the people speak a Portuguese dialect.
Migrants from Galicia were so well represented in Argentina that "Gallego" was often used to refer to any Spanish immigrant.
For comparison, the Portuguese place name and surname Chaves, is found in Hispano-America, Usually spelt "Chavez".
