The distinguished surname Ariza 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.

The Great Migration



Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Pedro Arias de Avila, who succeeded Balboa as Governor of Darien (Panama) and founded Panama City in 1519. Hernando Arias de Saavedra, of Spanish descent, often called "the last conquistador," was the first man born in the New World to govern a Spanish territory: he was Governor and Captain-General of the La Plata region in the late 1500s, and he established Paraguay's virtual independence from Spanish administrators in Buenos Aires and Peru. Other settlers include Rodrigo Arias, who arrived in America in 1513.
