The Spanish surname Balderrama is of local origin, derived from a place name where the original bearer resided or held land. In ancient times, before a formal system of hereditary family surnames had evolved, it was common practice to name a person according to their place of origin. Thus, the surname Balderrama thus means "one who hailed from Valderas."

Balderrama Early Origins



The surname Balderrama was first found in the Castilian province of Leon, in the northwestern mountains of the region.
