But why would you look in there for a surname? F.Delanor Roosevelt (FDR) added Delanor to his name because he didn't like his surname 'Roosevelt Jr.' (Delano was his mother's maiden name). It started to be used as a first name only later, as a direct result of FDR's popularity. Oh well, at least they didn't derive it from Italian 'del Ano'.
