From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Ordoņez family. Originally, the Spanish people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in Spain is extremely interesting. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were 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 one of the most common patronymic suffix is "iz." The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. The name Ordoņez is derived from the Latin personal name Fortunio, which means fortunate.
