Noble surnames, such as Espino, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The Espino 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.


Spelling variations of this family name include: Espinosa, Espinoso, Espinoza, Espinozo, Espina and many more.

First found in Castile, an important Christian kingdom of medieval Spain.
