An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016


The mountainous borders of Spain contain the origins of the prestigious surname Santiago. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain 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. Spanish patronymic names emerged in the mid-9th century and were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins.
