I don't know the correct answer.

But last name sounds like allah-va-rare-row or allah-va-rare-ra.

Oliveira has been eliminated.

They were in the U.S. Military so the "allah" should not be assumed to be related to their ethnic origin, I don't think. That, allah, is used to indicate how the name is possibly pronounced.

That's not much to go on.  Why would any of us know the answer?

It's similar to this seemingly impossible one:

------------------
in my question, someone only knows the way the last name was pronoucned, but they do not know how to spell the last name.
I know other very remote hints but there is no way to keep the details private.
And for me at least they are not enough to figure out the person's last name. Thus ask puzzle solvers.

Do you have any guesses about ethnicity? That might help in thinking of possible names.

Well, there is a way it seems for me to ask private questions on EE?
Maybe I can try that?
How does that work? Private only to EE members and not able to be found using Google.

I've got more clues but can not post them on a public forum.

I'll check those out.
If the last name sounds like "allah" I'd guess the first letter of the last name has to an A or an O.

I, E, U, woud not fit a name that starts like "allah"
And I doubt Allah would be a non vowel.

I'll check with the person who wanted to know. The said there was a small chance that part of the person's ethnicity was Mexican.

Alvarado, Albarado?
Maybe he became a botanist or pharmacist after leaving the military ;-)

As is turned out the last name starts with a Y and the person was part German, part Puerto Rican.
It is pronounced similar to ree-sorry. (stated that way to protect the persons privacy)
