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.

Ordoņez Early Origins



The surname Ordoņez was first found in Asturias, where the Christian Reconquest of the Iberian peninsula began in the eighth century. One of the earliest records of the family was Sancho Ordóņez (c. 895 - 929), King of Galicia from 926 and until his death in 929. He was the eldest son of Ordoņo II, (c. 873-924) who king of Galicia from 910, and king of Galicia and León from 914 until his death.

Later, Sancho Ordóņez (before 1042- c.1080), a count who lived in the 11th-century. His father was Ordoņo Bermúdez, an illegitimate son of King Bermudo II of León.
