hi, can you tell me where you got the information that the quintanilla surname is descended from the moors?

i ask becasue i recently had my ydna tested and it came back as semetic of berber origin. since the berbers were used extensively by the moors in their conquest of spain i'm wondering if this is how my paternal ancestors of berber ethnicity ended up with the quintanilla surname.
