The distinguished surname Fajardo has its origins in the north of Spain. It is derived from a Spanish place name near Lugo which is located in the province of Galicia. Thus, the surname Fajardo may simply signify a person who dwelled in or near that community.

Fajardo Early Origins



The surname Fajardo was first found in the province of Galicia in the northwestern tip of the Iberian peninsula. It is believed that the progenitor of the Fajardo family was a Galician named Pedro Anes Galego who was Lord of Santa Marta de Ortigueira and who was the first to bear the surname Fajardo. He lived in the thirteenth century. There is also mention of the name Fajardo being used in connection with Don Fruela I, the King of Leon, as early as 768.
