Dávilla History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Portuguese, Spanish


Noble surnames, such as Dávilla, evoke images of the ancient homeland of the Spanish people. The original bearer of the name Dávilla, which is a local surname, once lived, held land, or was born in the beautiful region of Spain. In Spain, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. Many Spanish local names reflect Arabic words or place-names because Spain was conquered by the Muslim Moors from the 8th to 12th centuries. The Dávilla family originally derived its name from the name of the province Avila.
