Multiple Origins for the Surname Duran



The distinguished surname Duran comes from Spain, a country rich in culture and history. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Spanish patronymic names emerged as early as the mid-9th century and the most common patronymic suffix is ez.

Duran Early Origins



The surname Duran was first found in Galicia, where the Celts and the Swabians, a Germanic tribe, had settled.
