The noble surname Cuenca 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 Cuenca is derived from the Latin word "concha" which means "valley surrounded by mountains."

Cuenca Early Origins



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