The noble surname Concha is of Spanish descent and appears to be of toponymic origin, as it is derived from the place-name where the original bearer had lived or owned land. The etymology of the surname Concha is derived from the Latin word "concha" which means "valley surrounded by mountains."

Concha Early Origins



The surname Concha was first found in the district of Torelavega in the province of Santander. However, records show that the Concha family was also present in the provinces of Santillana and Vizcaya in the northern regions of Spain.
