Where did the Spanish Gracia family come from? What is the Spanish Gracia family crest and coat of arms? When did the Gracia family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Gracia 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. Gracia is thought to be a patronymic name formed from a now unknown medieval given name. An older Latin form of the surname was Garsea, but the roots of this name may well pre-date the Latin era and come from the Basque language.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Garcia, García, Garsea, Garsía, Garsia, Garcies, Guarsea, Guarseas, Garsías, Garsias, Gassía, Gassia, Garci, Garcés, Garces, Garcíaz, Garciaz, Garséaz, Garseaz, Gasset, Garcet, Gracía, Gracia and many more.
