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. These so-called local names often denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Sepulvado family originally lived in one of the places named Sepulveda, of which there are a number in the provinces of Salamanca and Segovia. Sepulveda is derived form the Spanish word "sepultar," which means "to bury."
