Multiple Origins for the Surname Rodrígues


Spanish


The prestigious surname Rodrígues originated in Spain, a country which has figured prominently in world affairs for hundreds of years. The name is patronymic in origin, deriving from the name of the father of the initial bearer, and its roots can be traced back to the Visigoths, the Germanic tribe who ruled Spain between the mid-5th and early 8th centuries. Rodrígues is derived from the Germanic personal name "Hrodric," which is composed of the elements "hrod," meaning "renown," and "ric," meaning "power." Thus, the name Rodrígues combines this personal name with the patronymic suffix "-ez," and refers to "a famous ruler."

Rodrígues Early Origins



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