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

From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Solis family. The original bearer of the name Solis, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. 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. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Solis family originally lived in any of the numerous village and towns named Soler. This place-name is derived from the word "soler," which means "site" or "plot" and it is ultimately derived from the Late Latin word "solarium," which means "bottom" or "ground."
