The ancient and noble surname Almaraz is of Spanish descent and appears to be of local, or toponymic, origin. Thus, it is derived from the place of residence of the initial bearer, which, in this instance, is the place name "Almaraz." The place name Almaraz is derived from the Arabic word "almarada" which signified "a sharp needle for sewing sandals."

Almaraz Early Origins



The surname Almaraz was first found in the district of Navalmoral, in the province of Caceres in Extremadura. The progenitor of the Almaraz family is believed to have been Gomez de Almaraz who lived during the reign of King Pedro of Castille and who is mentioned in a document dated 1360.
