    I searched across the internet, and I could not find any information about the clans.

    I hope that someone else, or maybe myself will be able to assist you further.

    Do you mean Portuguese Celtic clans / tribes or family names?

    You can start with Portuguese names on WIKI, if that's what you are looking for.

    Hi,
    I don't know if you can call it "clans"...

    Velho: it means "old"...never seen it as a surname...
    Soto: it should be "Souto"; it means "
    Chestnut woods"; it is more a toponym (check wikipedia Souto); not so common, but there are some people with this name as "Souto Moura".
    Fernandes: son of Fernando.
    Major: military rank;
    ...never seen it as a surname...
    Aveiro: city/district south of Porto; it is the surname of Cristiano Ronaldo.
