The surname Calleja is of Spanish descent and is of toponymic origin, as it is derived from a physical feature characteristic of the area where the original bearer lived or owned land. The surname Calleja is derived from the Latin "callis" and the Spanish word "calle" which means "street." In modern Spanish "calle" is the normal word for a street, but at the time when surnames were being formed it referred to something rather more modest. Thus, the family name Calleja was giving to someone who lived beside a narrow path or a cattle trail.

Calleja Early Origins



The surname Calleja was first found in the province of Santander, in the ancient kingdom of Castile.
