About the Franco surname

Frank nation first may descend from Feranek father of A'al-Lawas-Te-Panna from the tribe of Ze-Be-Laya-Na ,that inhabited the region called of him Belize on the Holy Land ,both living in about the XVII. century b.c. in the days of migration and home-taking .

Later ,as it is known from history,some members of Troian ruling dynasty of likely Zhe origin might have joined them,and the son of Hektór might have therefore got the name Phrankión,just have many of their successors later. They might have lived in the Holy Land though until the exile by the Assyrians reached them about 800 years b.c.,and then the majority of their tribes have been taken into Eurasia into captivity until this day. As a result of this,might have names of Pannonia and Lusitania on Europe emerged given to the regions by descendants of the hero above mentioned .

Inhabitants and settlers of Canarian islands might have also arrived from Lusitania's direction and might therefore be of "Mayan" and Zhe origin . Connection between the island and the continent might have namely existed as long as the Guanche kings ruled ,as for example Bentagorhe ruling until about 1478 according to Spanish aera now in use, that began in 1387 b.c.,is clearly identical with Dagobreht king of Franconia until the 630s according to Persian counting from 546 b.c.. Their names correspond to each other in the likely earlier form of some local language of Ben-Et-Dago-Rehe and Dago-Ben-Rehe-Et .

Some generations earlier lived Guan-Arame who is either Gonthramn of Franconia ( c.592 that is 46 ), that is Guantsh-Aramen ,or even Arthari of Longobardia too . He was called in Ibérian Georgia also Guaram and on the other bank of thet Ocean in Tarasca state Aramen . Persian called him Hormizd Artashahr,king of Armini,and Armenians Ghewan of Armenia . As Armenios,he is reported to have married Thusnelda,the daughter of Segest,father of Segimunt , corresponding to Ico,daughter of Zonzamas .

Tepanecas may also descend from him .

Jews and christians say Parnak,'Elitsafan,Zebulon .
