Multiple Origins for the Surname Corona


Spanish


From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Corona family. Originally, the Spanish people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Spain is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Nickname surnames were derived from an eke-name, or added name. They usually reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The name Corona is a nickname type of surname for a person that was loved by his family and friends having derived from the Spanish word "caro," which was itself derived from the Latin word "carus," which means beloved or dear.

Corona Early Origins



The surname Corona was first found in Galicia, in the northwestern corner of Spain.
