Chinese-derived names with only two syllables.
According to Weedy Tan (from Manila), some Northern Chinese had two-syllable family names.
It is possible that a few of the names may not be uniquely Filipino but were also used in China.

Arsenio Parenas Chanco and Felicitas Gutierrez     Picture 1984  
Felicitas Gutierrez has always lived in Manila (born & raised...devout catholic...25% spanish). She was an only child but her dad died when she was 4 or 5 yrs old (I think during the war). Her mom re-married and my mom was adopted by her great-aunt who didn't have a child. They had a small canteen and a boarding house. Arsenio Parenas Chanco came to Manila to go to college (hoping to be an electrical engineer. Stayed in Mom's boarding house. Arsenio brought his younger brother to Manila. He couldn't afford college so he switched to evening vocational school (master electrician) and worked during the day to support both of them. Arsenio Parenas Chanco and Felicitas Gutierrez were married in 1959.
