    Notes 
    • Gonzalo Humberto Miranda was moody. He had taken his mother's surname because he did not like his father when, at the age of 14, he first met his father. Similarly, Gonzalo Humberto did not always get along with his wife's parents.

      In Nicaragua and in most of Latin America, the mother's surname is used as a suffix to a child's surname. Thus, the children of Gonzalo Humberto Miranda would be known as, e.g., Aura Elina Miranda Fernandez, with "Fernandez" being the suffix derived from Juana Ernestina's surname.

      However, because Gonzalo Humberto did not always get along with his father-in-law, he put the mother-in-law's surname, Gomez, on some, but not all, of his children's birth certificates.

      A good example is Roger Miranda Gomez who is well known by that name despite the fact that his mother's maiden name was Fernandez.
