Origins Available: Italian, Spanish


The distinguished Spanish surname Cammarata is of locative origin, being based on a physical or geographic feature found in the vicinity of the eponymous bearer's place of abode. In this case, the Spanish word "camara" means "granary or barn," and the surname would indicate that the original bearer lived beside a granary. In the feudal manors and estates of the Middle Ages, the granary would have been used by the lord's extensive household, and would have been a local landmark.

Cammarata Early Origins



The surname Cammarata was first found in the province of Galicia in the northwestern region of the Iberian peninsula. However, like many locative surnames, Cammarata arose independently in various parts of Spain. Records show that a branch of the family had its ancestral home in the Valley of Ayala, in Amurrio (Alava).
