I love this name, it sounds so classy and sophisticated, the impression I get when I hear this name is that of a handsome, well educated gentleman who comes from either Spain or Italy, it's got a mysterious flare to it.

Antonio de Oliveira Salazar (1989-1970) was Prime Minister of Portugal and led an authoritarian, far-right government.

Children's author J.K. Rowling used his surname for the name of the evil Salazar Slytherin, the founder of Slytherin House at Hogwarts.

It was a quite deliberate choice for Rowling, who had lived and worked as a language teacher in Portugal.
