Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Zaragosa family history?The distinguished Spanish surname Zaragosa is derived from the place-name Saragossa, which is the capital of the northern Spanish province of Aragon. Thus, the first-bearer of this name hailed from this place whose name he took as an easy means of identification. It is said that the city of Saragossa was built by the Phoenicians, and the Romans sent a colony there in the reign of Augustus, whence it had the name of Caesarea Augusta, which by corruption has been changed to Saragossa.
