Origins Available: Jewish, Spanish


The distinguished surname Arias comes from Spain, a country rich in culture and history. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. This surname is thought to be derived from the one of personal names Ares, Aria or Arius which were used in the "Romance" countries. Spanish patronymic names emerged as early as the mid-9th century and the most common patronymic suffix is "ez". The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. Some names are derived from the saints of the Christian Church, but many Spanish surnames are derived from personal names of Germanic origin, from when the Visigoths held Spain between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries.
