Where did the Spanish Jiron family come from? What is the Spanish Jiron family crest and coat of arms? When did the Jiron family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Jiron family history?

The mountainous borders of Spain contain the origins of the prestigious surname Jiron. 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. Spanish patronymic names emerged as early as the mid-9th century and the most common patronymic suffix is "ez." The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. As well as the names of the saints of the Christian Church, many of the most common Spanish surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin as the Visigoths held Spain between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries and accordingly had a profound impact on the development of surnames.
