About the Spira surname

Spira family might have been given the name of Spera ,son of Palemon,brother of Burkus and of Kunas of Lietuva .

Palemon,remembered by Finns likely as Lempi,living some 10 generations before the Lithuanian Chronicle was written in the 1530s according to the Italians ,that is in the 180s ,might be identical with one of the brothers of Mithredat of Parthia ,called Manco Khapak in Peru,namely with the one called Ayar Toba Gochi .

His army of settlers in Lithuania might have included descendants of Mascoy ,king of Llempellec, and of others from that country ,and this might be the reason he was called by the name Palemon ( Pa-Lem-on ) referring to Llempellec ( Llem-Pa-Illec ) . The ones retirning later to Paraguay might therefor be called Toba-Mascoy people as well as Kilyetwaiwo that is King -Lietuwaiwo .

Kunas allegedly founded Kaunas,Burkus moved to Samogitia / Zmud ,while Spera himself might have became the ancestor of families later called Spira among Jews succeeding and descending from Goths of Eastern Europe .
