Our language requires that every word (even foreigner surnames), in order to get implemented in a proper sentence, ends with a handful of letters. Usually these letters are "s", "", "a", "e" sometimes "o", "ē", "ā", "i" or "ī", but these last ones are quite rare.

I'm 99% sure that your surname in our language would end with one of the letters I listed, for example if your last name is Brown or Smith, in Latvian your surname would end with "s". If you have a French sounding surname, most likely your last name will end with the letters from the second bunch I listed.
