The long and noble heritage behind the name of Casteel first began in medieval Spain
. While the patronymic
and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in Spain
surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Since Spain
was periodically dominated by both the Germanic speaking Visigoths
and the Arabic and Muslim Moors
in its past, it's surnames share much in common with the surnames of both of these nations. Many people, such as the Casteel family, adopted the name of their occupation
as their surname. The surname Casteel was an occupational name for a person who worked in a castle.
The surname Casteel was first found in Galicia
, in the northwestern region of the Iberian peninsula.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Castellano, Castellanos and others.
