The long and noble heritage behind the name of Castile 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, occupational 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 Castile family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. The surname Castile was an occupational name for a person who worked in a castle.
