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

From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Ramus family. Originally, the Spanish people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Spain is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name.
