The Spanish surname Arceo is of toponymic origin, deriving from a place where the initial bearer once resided or held land. In this instance, the root of the surname Arceo is the Spanish "arce," meaning "maple tree," and thus, the name was originally used in feudal times to denote a dweller near a maple tree.

Arceo Early Origins



The surname Arceo was first found in the valley of Mena in the province of Burgos. Although there is evidence that the Arceo family was in other northern Regions of Spain in the early Middle Ages, records show that their ancestral seat was in Villarcayo.
