The Spanish surname Escude is of occupational origin, that is, it belongs to that group of names derived from the job or profession pursued by its original bearer. In this instance "escudero" is an old Spanish word meaning "person who makes shields" from the Latin word "scutum" which means "squire," and refers to the servant who used to carry his lord's shield when it was not needed.

Escude Early Origins



The surname Escude was first found in the town of Espinosa de los Monoteros, in the region of Castille. There was also a family named Escudero de Larramendi who had their "casa solar" or ancestral seat in the province of Navarre in the north of Spain.
