The mountainous borders of Spain contain the origins of the prestigious surname Gunzáloz. 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. The surname Gunzáloz is made up of two elements: "Gonzalo," a personal name thought to be derived from the Visigothic "Gundesaelf," meaning "battle elf," and "-ez," the Spanish patronymic suffix.

Gunzáloz Early Origins



The surname Gunzáloz was first found in Castile, where the name originated in Visigothic times.
