Where did the Spanish Arroyo family come from? What is the Spanish Arroyo family crest and coat of arms? When did the Arroyo family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Arroyo family history?Noble surnames, such as Arroyo, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Arroyo, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. Many Spanish local names reflect Arabic words or place-names because Spain was conquered by the Muslim Moors from the 8th to 12th centuries. The Arroyo family originally lived beside a body of water.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Arroyo, de Arroyo, del Arroyo, Arroyos, Arroyal, de Arroyal, Arroyuelo, de Arroyuelo, Arroyuela and many more.
