The distinguished surname Arevalo has its roots in Spain, derived from the place of origin of the initial bearer. In this case, the surname is derived from the place name Arévalo found in the province of Castilla la Vieja. The meaning of the surname Arevalo is possibly derived from the Celtic "are-valon" meaning "near to the wall."
