An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016


Noble surnames, such as De la fuente, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name De la fuente, 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. Many Spanish local names reflect Arabic words or place-names because Spain was conquered by the Muslim Moors from the 8th to 12th centuries.The De la fuente family originally lived in the region of Fuentes which is a place-name that means fountains.
