The distinguished Spanish surname Esteva is a proud sign of a rich and ancient heritage. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. Spanish patronymic names emerged as early as the mid-9th century and the most common patronymic suffix is "ez."

Esteva Early Origins



The surname Esteva was first found in Galicia, in the northwestern region of Spain.
