The distinguished Spanish name Delgadillo is a nickname type of surname for a thin person. Originally, the Spanish people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Spain is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames. Frequently, nickname surnames, such as Delgadillo, reflected the physical characteristics or attributes of the first person that used the name. The name Delgadillo is derived from the Spanish word "delgado," which means slender, and the Latin word "delicatus," which means dainty or exquisite.
