The Spanish surname Friaz is of local origin, and is derived from the place where the initial bearer once lived or held land. Places named Frías can be found in two provinces in Spain, in Burgos (Castilla la Viaja) and in Cadiz (Andalucia). The word "frias" is derived from the Latin "frigiditas" which in Spanish became "frialdades" shortened to "frías" meaning "cold." This was a reference to the climate of the area which in ancient times was cold.
