The distinguished Spanish surname Altamyrano is of toponymic origin, that is, it belongs to that category of surnames which derive their origin from the name of the place in which the original bearer of the name was born or resided. In this instance, the surname Altamyrano comes directly from Altamiros or Altamira.
