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."

Arevalo Early Origins



The surname Arevalo was first found in the region of Castile, a powerful Christian kingdom of medieval Spain. Evidence shows an early presence of the Arevalo surname near Avila, Soria, and northern Spain. One of the earliest records of the city of Arévalo is that of its reconquest in the year 750 by the knight, Fernán Martínez de Montalvo, who thereafter took as his surname the name Arévalo.
