In my studies (LsL aka SdL), i have found that both -ez and -es signify the meaning "son of"; much in the same way as the following do as well: ben, bar, ibn, b, ap, ab, mab, Mac, Manx, Mag, M, Mc, C-, K-, Q-, G-, H-, O', O-, -mir, -ric, von, -ov, -ev, -ova, -eva, -ovich, -evich, -ovic, -ich, -ici, -vich, -vic, -vics, -off, de, fitz-, fils-, -sen, -son, -ing, -ski, -cki, -dzki, ina or "iña", ka-, -i, -ian,
-oglu, -oglou, -ogly, -zade, -zadeh, bet, bit, -pur, -zadah, -zad, -zadeh, -s, -se, -sz, -x, à, di, fu, quondam, N.N., -n, -poika, dze, shvili, papá, papás, -fi, -fy, -ffy, fia, -escu, -eanu, -ovych, -yovych, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. The aforementioned are used mainly as patronymic representing the masculine paternal lineage, ie "son of" Whereas "daughter of" may still denote her paternal lineal side, with different signification means of such. Please, continue to research these meanings and their usage, as it will help in much of your research regarding your own personal ancestors; proving quite useful.
