Where did the Spanish Aymerich family come from? What is the Spanish Aymerich family crest and coat of arms? When did the Aymerich family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Aymerich family history?The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Similar to many Spanish patronymic names, the distinguished surname Aymerich is a proud sign of a rich and ancient ancestry. Checking further we found the name was derived from the medieval given name Manrique, which is composed of the Germanic elements mann, which means man and ric, which means power. Thus, the name Aymerich was given to a man of great strength and power.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Manrique, Manrico, Malrico, Almerique, Iambic and many more.
