The name Aguila emerged in the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Aguila, 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 from the 8th to 12th centuries conquered Spain. The Aguila family originally lived in a region close to an eagles nest. The surname Aguila originally derived for the Latin word L'Aquillare which referred to a haunt for eagles.
