The story of the Bojorquez surname begins with the place-name Bohorques, which is in turn derived from the Old French "bejort," meaning "lance" (the fighting instrument used in medieval tournaments). When surnames began to be used in Medieval Spain, it was not uncommon to assume the name of an existing place as a surname.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Bohorquez, Bojorquez, Bojardo, Bojardez, Bohardo, Bohardez, Bohardes and many more.
First found in Catalonia, in northeastern Spain.
