The noble surname Almaguer is of Spanish descent, and appears to be of toponymic origin, derived from the place name where the original bearer first lived or owned land. The name Almaguer is rooted in the Arabic language, and comes from the two words "al" and "magra" which together means "red clay." Thus, the place where the surname Almaguer originated, must have had the characteristic of red clay.
