The Alarcon family originally lived in the region of Alarcon in the provinces of Cuenca and Cordoba. Noble surnames, such as Alarcon, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Alarcon, 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 reflected Arabic words or place-names because the Muslim Moors from the 8th to 12th centuries conquered Spain. The Alarcon family derived its name from the place-name Alarcon.
