The original bearer of the name Delrio, 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. The Delrio family originally lived near a river. The name was derived from the Spanish word "rio," which meant "river."
