Noble surnames, such as Cortesia, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Cortesia, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate.

Cortesia Early Origins



The surname Cortesia was first found in Aragon, an important Christian kingdom of mediaeval Spain.
