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
