From the historical and enchanting region of Spain emerged a multitude of noble families, including the distinguished Floria 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. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Often they adopted names that were derived from nicknames.

Floria Early Origins



The surname Floria was first found in Asturias, where the Visigothic court took refuge after the Muslim invasion of the peninsula.
