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 reflected Arabic words or place-names because the Muslim Moors from the 8th to 12th centuries conquered Spain. The Alameda family derived its name from the place-name Alarcon.
