The noble Spanish surname Almodovar is of toponymic origin, that is, it is derived from the place name Almodóvar, located in the southern Spanish province of Cadiz. Thus, the surname Almodovar signifies "one from Almodóvar."The place name Almodóvar signifies "round place" and is derived from the contraction of two Arabic elements, the definitive article "al," meaning "the," and "modovar" of uncertain origin.

Almodovar Early Origins



The surname Almodovar was first found in the town of Almodovar in the Southern region of Spain. However, experts have suggested that Pedro de Almodóvar was the original bearer of the name Almodóvar, and that his ancestral house was in fact located in Motilla de Palancar in the province of Cuenca.
