The distinguished surname Becerril is widespread in Spain. It is probably of local origin, deriving from a name place in an agricultural community. The surname Becerril was, in fact, used as a nickname for a high-spirited individual, which comes from the Spanish term for a young cow "becerra."

Becerril Early Origins



The surname Becerril was first found in the kingdom of Castile, in north central Spain. Among the earliest records there is evidence that the Becerril family was present in Ciudad Real (Castilla La Nueva) during the Middle Ages.
