Callejas History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



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.

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.
