The noble Spanish surname Cobo is of local origin, that is, it is derived from the name of a place where a man once lived or held land. In this instance the surname Cobo comes from the Latin word "covum," which corresponds to the English word "hollow" or "cave." Thus, the original bearer of the name most likely lived in a place well known for its proximity to some caves.

Cobo Early Origins



The surname Cobo was first found in the province of Burgos in the northern region of Castile-Leon. The earliest records of the name Cobo are from the church of Santo Domingo de la Calzada which mentions a Knight by the name of don Juan Cobo in 1157.
