The distinguished Spanish surname Duena appears to be of local origin, being derived from the name of a place where a man once lived or where he once owned land. This place name is believed to be derived from the Spanish word "duenas" (from the Latin Dominus, lord), which is the feminine form of "duenos," and means "proprietresses or heiresses," and may have been originally used to describe an area owned by an heiress, or where a few heiresses lived.

Duena Early Origins



The surname Duena was first found in the province of Palencia, in the region of Leon. Some say that the lands of Duenas were owned by Isabel, daughter of Isabel and Ferdinand, the Catholic monarchs of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
