The surname Callejas 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 Callejas 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 Callejas was giving to someone who lived beside a narrow path or a cattle trail.

Callejas Early Origins



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