The name Castilla is derived from the Late Latin word "castellum," which meant a fortified building (a castle), a set of buildings or even a village. The region of Castilla in central Spain, an independent kingdom from the 11th to the 16th century, was so named because of the many castles located there.

Castilla Early Origins



The surname Castilla was first found in the mountainous area of Santander, in the northwestern region of the Iberian peninsula.
