As with many French family names, the distinguished surname Mateo is rich in ancient heritage. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in France 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. The name Mateo is derived from the Hebrew Biblical given name Matityahu (Matthew), meaning gift of God.
