De leon Early Origins



The surname De leon was first found in Leon, where the name originated in Visigothic times. One of the first records of the surname was Moses de León ( c. 1250-1305), a Spanish rabbi and Kabbalist who is thought of as the composer or redactor of the Zohar. And much later, most people know of Juan Ponce de León (1474-1521), the Spanish explorer and conquistador and his association with the legend of the Fountain of Youth.
