Origins Available: Portuguese, Spanish


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