The Spanish surname Astorga is of noble and ancient lineage. The name appears to be of local origin, derived from the name of a place where a man once lived or where he once owned land. The surname Astorga is, therefore, derived from the place of the same name. Originally known as Asturica Augusta, it was a major road junction in Roman times, and later it became a stopping point for the pilgrims that came from all parts of Spain and Europe, to visit the shrine of St. James in Santiago de Compstela.

Astorga Early Origins



The surname Astorga was first found in the region of Leon in northern Spain.
