Multiple Origins for the Surname Guzmán


Spanish


The distinguished surname Guzmán comes from Spain, a country rich in culture and history. 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."

Guzmán Early Origins



The surname Guzmán was first found in Leon, where the name originated in Visigothic times. Perhaps one of the most famous of the family was Alonso Pérez de Guzmán (1256-1309), known as Guzmán el Bueno ("the goodman"), a Spanish nobleman, progenitor of the dukes of Medina Sidonia lineage. He is generally thought to have been born in Léon but may have been a non-Spaniard by descent. In 1296, while in defense of the town of Tarifa, his son was offered in exchange for the surrender of the town. He reportedly threw down his knife for the besiegers to use in killing his son. For his sacrifice, he was granted large swaths of lands and thus began the dynasty.
