During the Middle Ages, the surname of Del espexo was used in Spain. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in Spain, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. During the Middle Ages, many people, such as the Del espexo family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Del espexo was an occupational name for a person who made or sold mirrors. This Spanish name was recorded in medieval documents in its Latin form, Speculum, which means to look or to see.
