Multiple Origins for the Surname Araujo


Portuguese


The Araujo surname was created from any of the various places in Portugal and Spain so named. As a place name, Araujo is derived from the Galician and Portuguese word "araujo" from the Latin "araujia sericifera," a type of climbing plant, with white, fragrant flowers.

Araujo Early Origins



The surname Araujo was first found in Galicia, where it seems as though Rodrigo Anes de Araújo, who was lord of the lands of Araújo, first took the name of the area as his own family name. From this line, Rodrigo Anes de Araújo married Dona Maoyor Alvares de Aza, daughter of Don Rodrigo Alvaresde Aza and his wife Don Maria Pires de Ambia. From Rodrigo Anes descend the Araújo family of Galicia, who were Lords of many houses in the region.
