Origins Available: Portuguese, Spanish


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

Espinola Early Origins



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