Title Test Find Portuguese Last Names
Expression
^[A-Z][a-z]+((eir|(n|l)h)(a|o))$
Description
I noticed that a last name is Portuguese if it ends in -eira, -eiro, -nha, or -nho. I know there are other Portuguese names that don't end with these, but I haven't yet come across any other foreign last names (besides Portuguese/Brazilian) that end in those 4.

I'm a Portuguese Citizen, born and raised in Portugal... You should insert that as Standard Default but not generelize soo much.
