The Aragou family originally lived in the area of Aragon. Noble surnames, such as Aragou, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Aragou, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. Many Spanish local names reflect Arabic words or place-names because the Muslim Moors from the 8th to 12th centuries conquered Spain. The Aragou family derived it name from the place-name Aragon. Aragon was one of the ancient kingdoms of Spain.
