The surname Alvez is patronymic, that is, it is a surname derived from the first name of a male relative. In this case, the surname is derived from the Portuguese/Spanish first name Alvaro, which is ultimately from the Germanic (Visigoth) words "all," meaning all and "wer," meaning true. The suffixes "ez - oz - iz - es" on the end of Portuguese names generally indicate that the name is of patronymic origin. There is also a place-name Alve which is located in Spain.

Alvez Early Origins



The surname Alvez was first found in Portugal. Early records of this name in Spain frequently occur with the prefix "de," and there is a reference to one Martin Garcia de Alve recorded in Tolosa in 1346.
