Moloch Isn't the last name "Ruiz Zafón" (and not "Zafón") though?

I didn't notice that before but yes, it does seem like his last name is "Ruiz Zafón".

The author is Spanish, and in Spain a surname is made up out of two names: the first part of the father's surname followed by the first part of the mother's surname. For a woman, a surname changes upon marriage: her surname will then consist of the first part of her husband's name followed by the first part of her maiden name.

So yes, I'd agree with Sofia's description, as in my opinion too Ruiz Zafón's surname starts with an 'R' and not with a 'Z'.
