The mountainous borders of Spain contain the origins of the prestigious surname Galindo. The earliest forms of hereditary surnames in Spain were the 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 the most common patronymic suffix is "ez." The patronyms were derived from a variety of given names that were of many different origins. This surname originally derived from the personal name Galindo which became popular during the Middle Ages. The surname Galindo primarily appeared in Aragon.
