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

From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Reyes family. The Reyes surname is derived from the Latin "regis, " meaning "royal." The Spanish word "rey" means "king," while "reina" means "queen." Bearing this name does not necessarily imply royal ancestry however; as, when surnames first began to be used in Medieval Spain, nicknames were often taken on as surnames.
