Noble surnames, such as Acevdo, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Acevdo, 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. Many Spanish local names reflect Arabic words or place-names because the Muslim Moors occupied Spain from the 8th to the 12th century. The Acevdo family originally lived beside an area of holly-bushes. The surname Acevdo was originally derived from the Old Spanish word Azevo which meant "holly."
