Noble surnames, such as Espana, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The Espana family name is derived from one of several places named Espinosa, found in a number of Spanish regions including Galicia and Vascongadas. The place-name Espinosa is derived from the word "espino," which means "hawthorn" and thus, the first bearer of this surname likely lived near a place where this tree grew in abundance.

Espana Early Origins



The surname Espana was first found in Castile, an important Christian kingdom of medieval Spain.
