Perhaps a lot of basques we suppose 100% ethnically basques are only half-basques , the same happens in the opposite direction about castilians,galicians or andalusians, basque surnames are present all over Spain, from Andalucia to Galicia.
Respect surnames I've only searched surname origins on the web, and accord them yes "Verdes" is a galician surname (from Lugo), Quiroga are galician too, Sobera catalan and Bernal originally french (but too present in the old "Aragon Kingdom" territory)
Between Azazel´s sample, I would say that Xabi Alonso, and Ane Igartiburu are etnically basque. The rest are only partially basque but no etnically basque, or even directly non basque like Imanol Arias who is leonese, or Lorena Bernal who is from Tucuman( Argentina) .
